Which Tape Device to Purchase??

Recommended Posts

I have been using Retrospect for a while am planning to upgrade current backup solution. My data pool has grown in size from ~10GB to more than 130GB after compression.


Current solution is to do incremental backups each evening from 5 Workstations + 2 laptops, and once per month burn new copy of backup pool to DVD.


Primary problem is that burning and verifying this many discs takes too much time.


I am also expecting a deluge of data in the next 12-18 months, probably another 200-300 GB.


Planned solution is to purchase tape drive (VXA-1, VXA-2 or AIT) and run while I sleep.


Drive suggestions/comments/experiences would be appreciated.
