Choosing a Backup media

I have 3 servers DL 380 G5 with Smart array P 400 BBWC. I was using an external HDD to backup data daily. Now the need of a perfect backup system is high for me. I checked in the HP site and read about HP StorageWorks MSL2024 Tape Library. But also from some posts i read that Smart arrays does not support Tape drives.
My servers are
1. DC + Antivirus Server+ file server
2. DC + Mail server
3. Application server

The data volume from all the server is less than 10 GB

Can anybody tell me which BAckup device is suit for me

Re: Choosing a Backup media


Its always better to opt for a seperate controller for backup device.

Following are the options available and controllers listed compatible to DL380 G5 for your ref.


Refer to storage controller for external storage and aso refer to disk based/tape based backup devices.
