Backup method

Hello all,
i am looking for a new backup method. i am thinking on the LTO4 technology.
right now i have 3 servers. 1 ML350 G4, ML 340 G4p and DL 360 G4 and they are all backing up on 4 70GB tapes ( hp storage works dat 72 and iomega) if i buy the HP LTO4 external tape drive do i have to add a scsi card into the server for it to work? or does these server already have a capability to add external scsi devices?

thank you in advanced

Yes you need a U320 HBA

If you want to have the best performance there are some things you need to consider.
