I have a Faststor 7000 DLT on my Novell server and it takes about 12 hours and 3 tapes to (full) backup 120gigs. I was looking for another solution to backup my 3 Win2k servers. I have 2 Firewire drives (80-250GB) I hooked both of these up to my server and using Arcserve I am able to do incrementals on the 80 and full on the 250. It takes 3 hours to do full backup of 80GB. This seems far better than buying another DLT at $8000 and $1500+ worth of tapes. What are the down sides to this? I intended to buy another set of drives to rotate and take offsite. My other option is to buy a Promise IDE card and add 4 hot swap drives and add to spare server I have. Ideas?
