I am replacing my SDLT tape drive with an LTO-4 tape drive. All of my servers are Dell - the only piece of equipment that isn't is my current tape drive - an Overland. I am in need of a new drive due to spiraling data backup sizes, and I have two very similar quotes for both of these machines. If you had to choose, which drive would you buy, and why?
Right now I am leaning towards the Dell, only because it will connect through SAS vs. SCSI. Thoughts???
