I was looking at setting up a backup server running on a virtualbox with Windows Server 2008r2 as the host (I have no say here). I was thinking about using FreeNAS with ZFS, however, I am finding out that some have had problems with this due to S.M.A.R.T. and windows paging when running FreeNAS on a virtual Machine.
This Backup Server will be responsible for backing up our whole infrastructure in increments of a week (already have an on site full backup solution).
Does Windows have any backup server-client applications that would both be VM friendly and have the performance to backup TeraBytes of data?
hardware specs are not a problem here.
Thank you in advance!
