RE: LTO Tape Backup Recommendations



fixed

Geez, I'm a goof....Monday morning fog.



Here's the rack config....and this will be our development box for the immediate future (and probably for at least three years or more). Box is currently running 6.1 and will probably move to 7.1 soon (for testing).

+1

And how long you're keeping your current box. For example, if you have an old Power 6 or earlier that you plan on keeping for 3 years or more makes a big difference.

You will need to tell us what your server is, machine type and model for

sure as well as feature code and which slot numbers in the machine or

any expansion drawers are available.



Also need to know your operating system version.



We don't want to recommend something that cannot be installed in your

machine!

All,



Can someone please recommend an LTO single tape backup solution

(external drive and card)? I would like to put some type of backup on a

new development box we are implementing so I have a backup solution in

place in case of emergency.



Part numbers would be extremely helpful.





Thankee-sai!
