Hi everyone,

I want to replicate the backups to another location over the internet so that when our main company burns down or anything, we still have backups on another site.

I have already posted on the backup exec forums ( and they suggested Backup Deduplication. This costs around 3.000 euro extra just for the licenses if I have it correct (another Backup Exec license + CASO + deduplication option).

Is this the only way or can we also implement a cheaper way like for instance the use of freefilesync to synchronise the backup-to-disk folder to another server over the internet over a VPN-connection?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the suggested link, but my partner already bought a Dell NX3100 to write the backups up on the other side, so the files need to be synced to that location and not available in the cloud.

Any other suggestion that I can install on the servers?

I discovered a nice little tool "DeltaSync" which is based on the protocol Rsync.
It just moves the changed bytes from 1 server to another.

At this moment it is working great and will keep on using this.

"BackupAssist" also has a tool which is based on Rsync. When we have some additional time, we will look into this if it's better than DeltaSync.

DeltaSync isn't supported at this moment but is free, so you might want to give it a try!

Thanks for the answers!

Found this tool after some research and does the job perfectly!

If I would be looking at other backup suppliers like Backup Exec, it would costs around 3000 euro extra for the licensing to do deduplication to another backup exec server...
