Obviously not for everyone, but it seemed a very good price to me for the Server version of their product. (£299.99+VAT = £359.99)

For pc and server Backup Restore and many more! open source and free!

Thanks Speed007 for the link to clonezilla, will add that to my list of useful utilities.

It has, however, different capabilities to Acronis Backup. Clonezilla is basically a ghosting solution, not really a server backup solution (unless you only want to backup and restore the whole server each time). Kudos to the OP for spotting the half price offer on this - and having the nuts to post it here!

Good program,know it,but never would buy for 360.

Nuts :-) I knew it wouldn't get any heat because of the lack of understanding of what this actually is, but for those people looking for something reliable for full Windows Servers (not SBS) this is actually a very good deal - so much so, that I bought 3 licences, saving a large sum of money that I'd have had to pay out anyway.

Personally I don't believe that open source software for critical server backup in a small business environment without an IT department is a very good option at all - but that's another discussion.

I've tried many of the open source programs (including clonezilla) and none of them meet the standards and ease of use (+support) of the major commercial players.

At £360 (inc vat) it's (relatively) good value to give you the peace of mind that your business data you've backed up will actually be available to restore, quickly and easily.

I know this from bitter experience, when a RAID5 array failed, and the backup was not fully available. £1500 to recover a portion of the lost data (yes I tried open source options first), a re-image using Drive Snapshot and lots of wasted time.

This would have made life much easier and I'd have been up and running in hours rather than days.
