I have a customer that is looking at a new server.
Instead of purchasing a new tape drive, they want to use an online storage service.
I've found a couple sites that offer these services, but wanted input from other professionals as to if this is a good idea?
Also, if it is, suggestions of anybody that would offer good service and support.
I'd rather have a tape drive personally, the finance person there says he doesn't like them.
I'm not a fan, because you put your faith in a person to change the tapes properly, and if not, backup schedules get interrupted.
Also, i've seen tape drive schedules never run, when they should. But will an online storage solution back up properly either?
They have a decent internet connection, but don't want to waste it on online backups.
