  • Backing up 2003 Server to Removable Disk?

    Hello - I am new here and thought I would reach out for some assistance. Our LTO tape drive died last night and I have already replaced it twice. I am getting a new backup system and am leaning towards removable disk. Anybody have any experience with this?

    I have narrowed it down to a few products. One was recommended to me by a consulting company ( I think they're Teralyte product would be the best fit because of the amount of data we are backing up.

    Any suggestions are appreciated!

    How much data are we talking about?

    Our company moved away from LTO about 5 years ago. Sure the media (tape) is cheap & portable, but sloooow & linear restores?

    We now have portable NAS in our office & a SAN in a data centre next door.

    There are many many D2D backup solutions out there.
