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.

just curious... why stick with tape?.... SAN is pretty price close muy good pronto
