LTO-5 is reliable .
I would suggest you have a word with the sales person and let him know your expectations so that they can give you the right solution.

thank you for the suggestion maybe ill talk to the sales man for best solution for all my servers.

for your own opinion what will you buy for external storage if you have 8 servers HP Proliant DL380 G6 and 1 HP storageworks MS2000fc using RAID6? and your servers are running 24/7 everyweek. and data is changing everyday.

what Backup configuration that is most likely? like backing it up everynight or everyweek? if i backup my servers everyday will the tape inserted on the tape drive storage will last for how many days?

thank you so much.
