server 2008 and Oracle backup

Best backup solution for 2 Windows 2008 servers?  One server will be running Oracle 10i and the other is running the app that talks to users and the database server (client/server app).  Our current servers all use tape backup.  Is tapes still the way to go nowadays?  Or is disk-to-disk more of a standard?  These servers are business critical so a short restore time is needed.

I recommend Disk to Disk for Fast restore and Disk to tape for offsite storeage.
We backup our Backup Disk to tape and store in a safe offsite.

it depends on what how much data you are backing up and how redundent you want it.

now if ou just want storeage this is what we use for our backup drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822165131

if you want something that will fit in a 2U spot http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822165089

We also back up our workstation to the drive too and we use Acronis to backup all our stuff. http://acronis.com
