Do you plan to eliminate tape from your backup process? If so, when?

Question of the Month: Do you plan to eliminate tape from your backup process? If so, when?


    "Industry accreditation for our organization requires that we have offsite storage of all backups. The easiest and most economical way for us to facilitate that is tape."
    --Steven Olson, network engineer, North Oaks Health System

    "Not until I have another reliable means of sending backups offsite."
    --John Padovano, New York City

    "We are looking to remove tape drives in all our remote sites. But, at the main data center, we will keep using tapes for vaulting purposes only."
    --Alain Richard, storage administrator, Ministère des Ressources naturelles et de la Faune, Quebec

    "No. We still send tapes offsite daily for disaster recovery purposes. We also keep a copy of the data on tape onsite. This is an area where we would consider evaluating virtual tape."
    --Debi Randolph, Server Support Group, First Services
