Yes if you already have EMC that does make sense. For Hoss though it might still be perfect. :-)

Thanks Larry...but already have the EMC environment for other backups
and have tried to use this for the IBM i to keep things as
simple(don't always think that's correct) as possible.

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.
