Assuming that network throughputs (with teaming/bonding/link aggregation
of links of gigabit NICs & switch ports) is not the bottleneck, would a USB
3.0 or Firewire 800 port on a high-end server provide throughputs that is
comparable or close to an LTO4 tape drive (say Quantum's LTO4 tape drive) ?
If it's not close, is USB 3.0's throughputs at least half that of the LTO4's ?
Curious if the age of performing backup via USB 3.0 external HDDs has arrived?
