The question is purely one of easy media usage. We have three servers which are backed up everyday on a 2 week schedule, so when week 1's tapes are out of the safe and in use week 2's tapes are safely stored in the safe in a seperate building.

The tapes that are in use are stcked up on a desktop for quick access, but its bloody messy and taking up valuable space.

I am looking for a wall or deskmounted rack to buy which can accomodate no less than 15 tapes to help us to tidy up. I cannot find any supplier of these in the UK.
Here is an example of what I am looking for: http://www.datalinksales.com/cgi-bin/shop/datstore.cgi?user_action=detail&catalogno=EDSR02

Its a bit expensive isnt it?

I'm going to make one if I cant buy one but if anyone knows of a supplier of something similar to these in the UK then please let me know.

The tapes need to be in a fixed position so I am not looking for a mobile media case.

Many thanks.

Not bad but there a bit big.

The cabinet or rack should be able to hold a minimum of 15 DLT tapes but probably no more than 20?

Thanks for the links though, I'll email them and ask if they can do anything smaller.
