Re: best backup solution

Hi there.
Try to get OmniBack for your machine and a DLT tape drive ( SCSI interface necessary ).

Re: best backup solution

Dear Peram,

I strongly suggest you consider an HP Ultrium tape drive. These drives have a native capacity (ie without data compression) of 100GB and a throughput of 15MB/s (7.5MB/s for the half-height version). These drives are available in internal and external desktop versions from HP. There is also a rack version and a library available. The HP.com website has full details and compatibility. Ultrium is also an 'open' standard (unlike DLT) and tapes can be interchanged with any drive bearing the Ultrium logo.

Re: best backup solution

Hi Peram,

I would recommend Omniback and LTO drives as well. I have worked with Omniback for the last 9 years and it has been a great backup tool for me. Over those years I have seen the usage of DDS-DLT-LTO and Omniback has worked well with all of them. I ran backups every night for three years without ever losing any data except for one occasion when the DDS tape broke. Thousands of companies, school systems and government agencies are using Omniback with some combination of DDS-DLT-LTO.

I hope this helps!
