I've used Ghost and other cloning and backup tools since the mid 1990s. I now have about 12 PCs that have a lot of duplicate data, backed up daily (when things work right).   I know for my family, a

Like many of you, I've relied on Microsoft Windows based home server products for 7 or 8 years now. And I still like it, but there have been bumps in the road lately, even with R2.   So I recently t

I just put this in shownotes for next week.  I signed up for Veeam but I haven't been able to find the actual beta download!

Ok, I'm slower moving than you guys but am downloading it now.  I've made some changes to my desktop setup and think i'll test it with a Core i3 PC.  My first thought is: 233MB download? Seriously?

Otherwise the notes on the download seem interesting.  "Veeam Backup & Replication™ integration and backup repository support are NOT included in this beta"  <-------This sounds fun!

 

Who else is testing?

And IIRC, it's not exactly simple to setup, either.

And i'm not thrilled about having to install SQL Server on each system that this is on. Though, I suspect that may be "mitigated" by integration with the Backup & Replication product....

 

Tested for a couple of hours... Not sure I'd use, unless I managed to completely break Server Backup (as that backs up my critical VMs).

If the repository could be stored on a NAS in the home there is a good argument for this versus WHS or Essentials R2.  By the way, I'm sitting here staring at the SQL Server 2012 prompts and loathing to continue.

Yes, what is it about SQL Server that makes one loath to install it??

Memory and CPU usage.

 

I dunno; I think there's something about the installation process that makes a person say, "Oh crap, here we go again". I think it's all the choices, and the fact that rarely are the defaults really viable. Somehow, SQL Server just isn't a fun experience.

^this

 

and it is a serious resource hog... that's why Microsoft basically requires a dedicated server for using with SCCM... it's not the tools that require a ton of resources, it's the SQL server required behind it.
