Well, the #1 recent article here is my Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010 Backup how to. The reason, of course, is that Exchange 2010 has been out since November 2009 and select few have yet announced or released Exchange 2010 support, and many companies are still trying to find how to backup Exchange 2010 in their production environment.
While I have not used many of these yet, I am hoping to try to demonstrate them all and update this post as new information comes. However, if you have made a significant investment in any of the below (or others, email me!) and are waiting for support, the best thing you can do is ask your vendor. The more input received, the more important you are making it for them!
Here is a chart of my findings thus far:
|Vendor||Product||Exchange 2010 Support||Exchange 2010 SP1 Support||DAG support|
|Commvault||Commvault||Non-DAG in 8.0, DAG in 9.0||Unknown||Yes in 9.0|
|Symantec||NetBackup||Yes in 7.0||Unknown||Yes in 7.0|
|Symantec||Backup Exec 2010||Yes, in Backup Exec 2010, must run x64 on BE Server||Yes, in Backup Exec 2010 R2||Yes in Backup Exec 2010|
|i365||eVault||Expected by EOY||Expected by EOY||Unknown|
|Microsoft||Windows Server Backup||Yes||Unknown||Yes|
By the way, if you know of ANY updates, feel free to comment, or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. If I said Unknown above it's more likely that your web site didn't make this information readily accessible. If I receive emails from the appropriate domain names, I will post it as official, more so if you can provide a link!
