I am trying to set up a network, so far I have a server that runs dhcp, dns, exchange, I am thinking about getting a SQL server, will tape backup be able to handle both server or do I need to look for some other kind of backup device.  What do you recommend.

Hi Dre25,
Yes a single tape  bakcup system can handle many servers. The key is the amount of data you are backing up vs tape capacity and also the backup software you use. I use Backup Exec to backup 10 servers to 1 HP Ultirum 320 Tape drive.

God Bless
