Had a friend call me up and ask me about backup solutions (for a mostly win server shop). I suggested running a Linux server with Mondo (ESX is used extensively as well). This brings up a question in my mind: What do the big boys use to backup systems (say ESX with win servers running DB's). I have never been tasked with finding an enterprise solution, but have heard of nothing but horror stories with some big name products. What do we have in the FOSS area for this? I quick look at the docs seems to say that mondo will not run on a windows only box (but will on ESX, but I don't know if that means a Mondo server will not back it up or not) and I don't know how it will handle systems that are running transactions while the back up is running. -- Damon L.
