Hi experts, just looking for some real world feedback on HP Storageworks DAT Drives.
Have a client getting a new file server and they had been using REV drives for backup. Thats no longer an option and I'm looking for feedback on HP DAT drives to compliment the new Proliant. I've lots of experience with the meatier Ultrium LTO drives which I know to be solid but they are expensive for the budget here and also the data is only 50GB and growing slowly so Ultrium would probably be overkill anyway especially as they will be using a proper day/month/annual rotation set requiring plenty of tapes.
How do folks rate the DAT drives? I'm sure given their popularity and coming from the HP stable they'll be fine for this scenario?
