A simple file and print server is nothing special and practically any hardware will do that is supported by your OS. Just get a server with built-in RAID capability. If your RAID controller is SCSI, make sure you get an additional SCSI controller for the backup tape (if that is also SCSI), as tape drives should never be attached to the same controller your HD's are on.
