Lots of people are turning to hard disks. Much faster, cheaper than tapes. How much data do you need to back up?

Not new technology, but using cheap hard drives, how about some RAID 5 technology? You get fault tolerence, a good write performance and a high read performance. 3 HDD minimum and 32 HDD maximum (on Windows 2000 Server Family)

Hi all, I would like to make a few comments.

1. I currently favor replication over traditional removable media backup. Its faster and just plain easier to get to your data when you need it. Thats not to say that removable media doesn't have its place, if you want to save old versions of files for archival purposes, tapes or CD's are useful.

Also, removable media is essential for off-site backups. Those new external firewire/usb drives are pretty cool, thats the best of both worlds. checkout www.basoncomputer.com for the best deals.


2. RAID/5 is not backup. It is protection against drive failures. You still only have one logical copy of everything, and a virus or ignorant user can delete data.
