I am a big fan of the Crossroads SPHiNX solution. They have a new smaller version that has just come out that may be perfect for you. It would connect to your system with SAS and looks and works for all the world just exactly like an IBM Tape Library. You can even IPL from it for a full system recovery.

SPHiNX Supports replication to another unit so you get off-site from that automatically.

Guys, I need your opinion on what would be a good VTL solution for a Small college. I need to do backups but I would also like to store the copies off site. We have 1.2TB of total storage and using currently 811GB. Normally I do a weekly full backup and then incrementally during the week using BRMS. I think that I would like a solution that would:


1) Backup to a VTL

2) The VTL would Replicate to another VTL that would be located off-site approximately 3 miles away.

3) I would like to keep the monthly backups for 12 months and then recycle them.

4) I would like to keep yearly backups until I decide to recycle them.

Money is an object, so I need a good solid low-cost solution.

Thanks in advance.
