Bigger tapes for LTO 2 drive?
Posted on 2010-11-30
We purchased a Dell Powervault 120 at the beginning of last year. It takes LTO 2 tapes that are 200/400gb. The company I work for has grown by 60% in the past year and 400gb will not be enough room. Can I use different (bigger) tapes in this drive, or do I need a different drive? Because I am already at this point, should I just start looking at online (offsite) backups? The growth of our company wasn't expected to be this fast but I could possibly see it growing another 30-40% in the next year. If no other tape will work, are there any recommendations on a nice tape drive or online backup solution?
