Apple's Mac OS offers many wonderful features, but tight integration into a Windows, Linux, or Unix environment isn't one of them. Acronis, among many others, have sought to fill the gaps left by Apple. Whether IT likes it or not, Macs in the enterprise are a reality. In fact, sales of Macs to businesses grew nearly 50 percent year over year in meanwhile, PC sales were down 13 percent.
Many see the advantages of enterprises moving to a more user-centric model where employees are free to use their workstation of choice, but using Macs in the enterprise also presents major compliance issues and threatens business continuity if Mac files are left unprotected.
IT departments clearly need a solution that can resolve the legal, financial, and bottom-line risks of Macs in the enterprise. And, to address this, on Wednesday, February 27, Acronis is releasing an architecture that seamlessly integrates Mac backups into its corporate data protection strategy, without affecting the user or administrator experience.
This means users can continue to operate on their workstation of choice, and administrators can be assured that IT is flexible, seamless, and fully compliant.
Backup, Archival, and Storage Solutions for the Real World
Ultimately, Mac integration is an important step in moving beyond traditional backup and disaster recovery to encompass a broader enterprise strategy for comprehensive, secure data protection. Regardless of where data resides, IT must ensure it is available, accessible, and protected in physical, virtual, and cloud environments. Acronis is known by its users as a provider of easy to use, but powerful backup and recovery software.
That being said, Acronis faces a bewildering array of competition including Apple's own backup capability, which is part of Mac OS. Here are a few of products tools that can be seen as competition for Acronis' products:. Backup Exec 2 agent by Symantec. ChronoSync by Econ Technologies. Data Backup by Prosoft Engineering. SuperDuper by Shirt Pocket.

This too looks useful, but does it do anything like file integrity handling like BRU does or is that considered not it's purpose? Meant to last long enough until I can upgrade to better solutions for older projects like those i'm trying to insure don't experience any more bit rot.
If a solution costs so much I can't afford it until after "another hard drive crashes" it does me no good - so it's more about understanding what I can do now, and what I should ideally do later, and not painting myself into the corner with the first solution somehow because the original solution at least works properly - even if it is not the most convenient, ideally time saving, or similar. Ie the minor hassle of "breaking projects into 2.

- Why Bother Backing Up? Nothing Ever Happens….
Another issue is interacting with outside parties. Mailing people an LTO tape using LTFS is something I can often expect people on the other side to handle, they may or may not have the same backup software I do and i'm not necessarily going to buy it for them. Basically it sounds like the two main differences between 'free' backup software and 'real' backup software is either data integrity OR easier librarian duties managing old versions and offline media archives, and the software either does one or the other.
Responding to things out of order. I'm still in college, much of what I do is on a shoestring. There is not enough side paying work to justify the level of investment most other people are making in their projects - a few hundred dollars is still alot of money. My main observation is that LTFS seems to almost do a better job for free by maintaining cross platform compatibility and near line access to files that i'm trying to understand why I would want to lock away files in a proprietary format? If I were a production house clearing a third of a petabyte per year in offline media archives that seems like a completely different use case.
As to technical support on HP's software I don't know anything about it, I was just planning on using straight LTFS which is already more reliable than the straight mirroring to USB backup drives i've been doing for years because i've had bit rot and file corruption sometimes occur. The main advantage I would see in backup systems designed for petabyte level storage is probably keeping track of easy to lose files but I already have a system for that which I use with external USB drives.
Most answers I can see coming from a backup company I would imagine to involve "well if it didn't work then your tape was corrupt" and other than straight three way mirroring keeping one offsite, like I assume they aren't going to be able to do much for me anyways. The tape is going to read in the hardware - or it's not. If that data is further locked away in some proprietary format - that helps me even less than if I can boot it onto any system.
If you help me with this for free, I will pay time for time for something else I know about.
free or low cost tape backup software? (and is there a point) : Archiving and Back-Up
Asking for best practices advice is not the same as volunteering hundreds of hours for an editing project. Hi Rachael - OMG! I know that you feel that I am attacking you with my response, and I fully appreciate that you are a very VERY ambitious student more than most professionals I know - but I have to respond. You do not need LTO for your project. It is fantastic that you want to learn about LTO, and that you are becoming aware of the different types of LTO archive solutions on the market.
But this is not your financial responsibility, and no offense, but your school project is not that critical that it requires LTO archive. The school can certainly afford it. It's not your responsibility.
3 Mac Backups? Are You Mad?
I think it's great that you want to do this, and are interested in learning this, as when you get out, your real job as an assistant editor will involve boring things that include transcoding, exporting, and archiving projects. Your LTO knowledge will be very valuable for you. While you have no money, your PARENTS that are funding you for an education whose degree will mean nothing in the real world, would be better suited to purchase real LTO software for you, instead of paying for school.
Everyone is a film maker. Not everyone knows the knowledge that you appear anxious to learn. That knowledge will give you the opportunity to "get in" and move forward with your career - not your creative film making class. It will leave you with heartache and frustration.
Besides - who is going to get you the LTO drive, which costs thousands of dollars, even if you had the software for free? Just my stupid 2 cents. I have to totally agree with Bob. In interfacing with the big studios and post houses, what you know about the technology and how to best utilize it weigh far more into landing a job in a real situation you know, one that can pay the bills and is far more important than an indie short and years of film school - which is only going to get you an AD position or possibly an ADP position - mostly at the intern level.
