Those are the exact platforms I am currenly backing up with Retrospect (now with version 6 Multi Server). Your question is not easily answered however. The drive you need is really determined by the amount of data you are backing up, the time window you have to do it in, and recovery needs as well. Megabytes? Gigabytes? Terrabytes?

 

 

 

I have 4 servers and 14 workstations (W2K, XP, Mac, RedHat) that require about 200GB for full backups and 20-60GB incrementals. An Exabyte VXA AutoPak 1x10 was perfect for our needs and allows some room to grow as well.
