Tape drive solution on rx4640 (ia64) machine running 11.31

Hi,

We have a rx4640 (ia64) machine with 2x 146GB HDD, 4GB RAM, 4 Processors and running 11.31 HP-UX without mirroring.

We want to go for a tape drive which can take ignite backup of this system? Can you please let us know how can we make it happen? Which drive to buy and what capacity etc.?

Thanks

I guess it depends how much you want to spend...

The cheaper solution would be a DAT drive - this is the recommended one:

Or for a few more $$$ you could look at an LTO instead - for the volume of data you have here, you'd only need a lower spec LTO such as this:

Remember Ignite is a a Disaster Recovery tool for recovering the OS. It *is not* a backup tool for anything apart from the OS - you still need to think about how you backup your application on this system.
