    Do you have any backup solution available in your company?
    Or are you looking for a new one?

    I'm using symantec netbackup, one of the best product on the market, but it is expensive, the smaller brother symantec backup exec is also not that bad.

    yes I know netbackup is the best. But, all I have at the moment is an HP dat tape drive. So I am looking for an easy way to do a backup
