Consolidating data

Hey Randy,

We have an NT environment and just purchased a NetApp filer (F820 model) to consolidate our data. We're leaning towards an ATL tape library and Veritas NetBackup ... What do you recommend?

There are many good backup software products and I'm sure the NetBackup solution will solve your problem. The same can be said for tape libraries. We typically don't make specific product recommendations but give some advice. Get references from the vendor and check them out. Get guarantees from the vendor and make sure you have a good relationship with your local sales and support team.
