we are looking for a backup solution for our xen servers that meets the following requirements:
- makes backups while machines are running
- has easy to use disaster recovery without depending on complex infrastructure in case of a disaster
- can backup all kinds of linux and windows machines
- sends some kind of message if something is not working. We dont want to monitor everything manually
We tried Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 virtual edition but it is not compatible with linux vms. Bacula does not seem to have good disaster recovery, as far as we know.
My question: What are good backup solutions for our requirements?
Thanks advance for your answers.
