Zmanda’s Cloud based Open Source Backup or Tivoli!!?

In this period of recession what could be much better than a low-cost open source tool..
That’s what Zmanda is hoping as it rolls out new cloud and enterprise data backup and recovery offerings.
The company this week unveiled Zmanda Cloud Backup, an online backup and disaster recovery offering for Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server based on Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3), and Amanda Enterprise Version 3.0, the latest version of the company’s data protection software based on the open source Amanda project.

Zmanda for data protection & backup for most widely used MSQL compared to IBM Tivoli which is highly costly.
Noticing the trend in storing data “in the cloud,” Zmanda quickly reacted and now offers an alternative to traditional backups on disk and tape.

Zmanda Web admin: Zmanda’s Amanda Enterprise and Zmanda Recovery Manager allow iPhone users to kick off Windows, Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, and MySQL backups, perform point-and-click restores, and view backup reports — in other words, to manage backup operations any time you care to think about them, and at any place within reach of a wireless network. In fact, you don’t even need the iPhone. Any Web browser will do. []
So check IBM Tivoli too.
