Affordable backup solutions that attach directly to servers: Complete, ready-to-use backup solutions; Easy to install and use; Capacities up to 800 GB of compressed data (400 GB native) per cartridge tape drives make backup : Fast - Speed is critical because your data is constantly growing while the time available for backup is shrinking. Even the slowest tape drive writes 1 MB per second and the fastest 30 MB per second - that means a 200 GB backup can be completed in less than two hours. Easy - Unlike other storage methods, tape drives offer a range of media that allows you to back up all the data on a small to medium-sized server - up to 200 GB - on a single cartridge. And tape backup captures your system setup information, as well as your data, allowing you to restore your entire system when disaster strikes. What's more, your software can schedule backups to happen automatically at the time most convenient for you. Affordable - Per gigabyte of storage, tape is the most cost-effective way to store large amounts of data. The compact size of tape cartridges also helps keep down your storage costs.
