A Whiskey Tango Fox Moment
Sorry for the threadjack here. I don't see anywhere that I can contact you off the blog. I know you're an IT dude, so, do you have any recommendations for a reasonably reliable (and reasonably low-cost) backup method, that could handle about 300 GB at a time? I've been relying on a DVD-burner, which is a bit of a pain (4 GB at a time) and not all that reliable. I was thinking tape drive, but they ain't cheap and they're not easy to come by, oddly enough.
Are you sure about the 300GB at a time? That's a crap load of data to backup.Off the to of my head you're looking at a LTO Ultrium 3 or 4 drive, which will set you back at least $3500. Tapes (400GB of storage each)will set you back $60 per.This will only work with a tower computer (not a laptop) as you will need a SCSI card, which is another $200, and maybe a cable for about $50.Up front costs (assuming 7 tapes to do 7 backups) is over $4000.And yeah that's the cheap solution.We should talk, so I can find out what your needs are, what your budget is, and then maybe we can work out a solution.E-mail cdnclosetliberal (a) yahoo dot ca
