How much money you are looking at spending?
How much data needs to be back up?
How mission critical is this data? Eg. How much down time can you afford while you are restoring your data.
My work as both a RAID and Removable Hard Drive.
RAID is there so we can keep the PC Running if one of the drives dies.
Backing up can start a $100, and go easily go to $10 000 depending on what you want.
Removable Hard Drive is there for Off Sight Back Up just incase some thing server. Eg. Bulding buring down to the group.
We used to have a TAPE Drive, but we retired it when 48Gig was just not enough. And the new version of BackUp Exec allows you to back up onto hard drive.
Server is also protected by a UPS/Surge Protector.
