    Hi,

    Am looking for some backup and compression utilities as our DW is over 200GB. Whilst this isnt a real problem, keeping a decent backup is.

    Could anyone suggest any backup and compression utilities like LiteSpeed or Idera SQLSafe, etc?

    Cheers

    How about Axtion for Avamar Co.? Probably, it's the best compress rate.

    I suggest you to download the trial version of such tools and test it yourselves. Also you can go thru the software spotlight articles in this website that gives more information on the tool.

    I have got downloads of the above products and activly testing them. I was interested to hear other people's view's and if I'd missed any other solutions.

    Thanks for everyone's input.

    Thats good but as you know more about your environment, it will be good you can test extensively and may involve the Vendor to takeup the issues.
