Tape backup LTO5, Overland or quantum
Posted on 2010-09-06
We got today an old NEC Tape backup station reading LTO2 tapes that's about to give up.
We received two quotes on diffrent LTO 5 Tape backup stations,
First one is a Quantum with 8 slots and LTO 5
Second one is a Overland with 12 slots and LTO 5, and it's about $1000 cheaper.
Both have bar code readers
What's the difference between these two (more like what's the better brand)?
Which one would u recomend?
What is good too know before buying?
Any other tips, other brands, tape stations etc. and why?
We are using a backup software called Presstore running on a Mac Pro and we have a mixed enviroment with both PC's and Mac's.
Today we backup about 3TB and growing.
