RDX or not

We have two Proliant ML servers, one running SBS 2003, the other running Server 08 with Terminal Services.

We would like an overall backup system that could possibly cover both servers. (Just one device to cover both?)

Is RDX for us, or would you recommend something else.

Thanks for any advice

Re: RDX or not

Based on HP's guidance, if you are not planning to use more than 3 cartridges, the RDX solution is cheaper than the DAT160 tape drive.

If you are new to backup, RDX might be the way to go. But if you are expecting your backup capacity to increase, then getting a tape drive might be better. The HP tape drives also allow for bare metal recovery so you can recover OS+app+data in one go.
