  • Tape drive recommendations

    Hey all

    Well I am now into the second week at my new job and I have quickly realised that we need a better backup solution. Currently backups go to 2 USB drives which are attached to servers, but they never leave the office, so I am looking to implement a tape based solution, in case we ever have a fire etc.

    At previous jobs I have worked with Dell Tape Backup units and have found them quite easy to use, I was thinking of getting this one

    The thing is, I would have to buy a scsi controller card with it as well and I am not sure what else is out there.

    Our backups need to cover:
    - 2 servers, at the moment total data of 280Gb, not likely to go up by an incredible amount anytime soon
    - possibly a 3rd server, not sure yet.

    Does anyone have any recommendations on good drives to use? A network attached unit would be nice.
