Hardware question - what tape backup systems are people using these days
tape drive recommendation

What sort of tape drives are people using these days for backing up servers and such?

I have been using a DSS-3 to back up my development PCs, but it takes forever.

The tapes can hold typically 15G but the data transfer is like 1MByte/sec even with a SCSI controller.

I'm looking for a backup technology that has faster data transfers i.e. 15 MByte/sec

Thx

Mike

many folks are moving to optical disks instead of tape.

I've been using DVD-RW format for some time now as well.

Why not back up to an external hard disk drive? They are up to something like 200Gb these days and are very quick.

External drives are now up to 500 GB (LaCie). When people use internal they tend to go for DATs.
