Well... you could create a save file, and FTP that somewhere...   it's not
ideal, since you'd need enough disk space to make the save file, but it's
something.

If you had a failure, how would you restore it?  You'd have to reinstall
the operating system & re-configure the networking in order to get at your
data...   so I don't think it's a good idea to completely replace your
tape backup with a network solution, but if you just need to make a quick
backup of a smallish library, it's useful.
