Re: external usb tape drive

The only external tape drives we sell now are in the DAT family. The current largest DAT drive is 80GB native; 160GB compressed.

If you need a larger capacity of removable media that's USB attach, look at the HP RDX ( which supports ruggedized removable SATA cartridges up to 500GB, performs continuous data protection with deduplication so that you're not storing the same data over and over again.

A three-cartridge rotation will be a great backup solution for many small businesses (two cartridges in a pinch).
