4MM DAT
--much much slower
--much much less capacity
++cheaper tapes

What tape do you have now?

My preference would be LTO. I'd also shoot toward getting a drive
that will hold a complete system backup on one tape. How much DASD
are you looking at?

Perhaps you can get an LTO4 or even LTO3 drive

Getting back to our Power 7 proposal, an LTO5 and 4MM have been proposed as
alternatives.  I see LTO mentioned all of the time in the list, but the cost
of the 4MM is about $2k less.  So what would be the downside/advantage of
going to the cheaper 4MM?
