Hello,
I need some Expert advice.

I currently have an Exabyte EXB-220 using a Mamouth1 tape drive. It has a 20 tape carosel.
This unit is at end of service life. I am looking for an updated unit.

I am backing up close to 2TB of data on a full backup. I know a SANS is probably a better solution but a Tape library will fit the bill for right now.

Any sugestions and vendors would be greatly appreciated.
