For internal use you should use a C1537A 12/24GB 4mm DDS3 tape drive or C5686A 20/40GB 4mm DDS4 tape drive.

Or you could use every external module that have LVD SCSI connections, like DLT, LTO or External DSS...

It depends on the capacity you want to backup.

Re: RP5470 backup solution required

there is one internal media bay in those boxes so if you already have an internal DVD-ROM drive in the media slot, you'll have the use an external tape drive, the easiest fix would be to slap a HP C6364A WSE desk-top DDS-3 DAT drive on the box and connect it via the WSE port. If you don't have a DVD-ROM in the slot, you could get a A5558A internal DDS-3 DAT for that system. Either way, your looking at around 350 bucks.

Re: RP5470 backup solution required

It really depends on what your needs are. You could go with anything from a DDS3, DDS4, DLT7000, DLT8000, LTO1, LTO2......

There are a LOT of drives that will work with this machine.
