I was just wondering what other people are using for a backup solution. I have worked with legato, veritas datacenter, and arcserve2000. I don't use any of them anymore to backup databases directly. I use sql backup to dump the files to disk then use the backup software to move them to tape. I was thinking about doing log shipping to a backup db server for some of the busy databases to keep i/o down on the box. Between dumping the databases, moving them to the right file system then backing them up accross the backup network to tape i/o on some of the systems can be busy. Any other solutions out there?
