I use SYMANTEC backup exec 2012 & take daily backups on Tapes. My tape drive has become defunct now & I  am looking for solutions (preferably disk based) & probably do a off site backup again from the backups already done on this hard drive.

I am looking for suggestion here on choosing the right hardware for backups . My Total backup data done is less than 1 TB.

I would like something that would work with my future setup as well  which would be Virtualized environment (VMWARE).

A small qnap or synology would probably be fine. What exactly do you plan on doing with vms? Just backing them up is no different.

You could just get a bunch of external USB drives and rotate off site.

Nothing fancy and cheap.

If you have Esata on the server use that. Next choice is usb3. If all you have is usb2 that maxes out at 25MB/s. So adding a Esata card if you have room is an easy way to speed things up.

Getting the tape drive fixed is only going to cost about $400 depending on what it is, replacing the head on an Ultrium costs about that much.
