storage tape drives/rackmount/under $1,200
Posted on 2003-12-11
I need a back up solution for a PoweEdge 2650. I'm not sure if anything would fit internally for this rack-mount server, probably not. So If there is nothing internal then I need to find something external. It needs to be tape drive though. This is a company requirement to use tape drives so the tapes can be taken off site for storage. Is there something rack-mountable and under $1,200 (I'm probably dreaming) that would be suggested. What brands should I go with? What brands should I stay away from? I need to back up only around 30gigs of data every night but this will probably grow to 50gigs within the next 2 years. This is going to back up a Suse linux server.
