No internal tape drive option for DL380 G5

The new DL380 G5 don't have an option for a internal tape drive. We've been deploying DL380's for years with the hot-swappable tape drive and now they eliminated that option. I'm either forced to move to some external drive or switch vendors. Both the IBM and the DELL have internal tape drives as an option in their 2U servers. What are others doing for backup on the DL380 servers?

Due to space constrains, internal tape drives are not included as an option for this server, instead of that, there are several options of 1U rackmounts, that can be shared between 2 servers.
