Re: Sounds good!

While a single drive in a vault may be a viable option for a brave SMB larger organisations can generate TB of data daily that needs archiving, and importantly it needs proper indexing so you know what is where and the knowledge you can download it. Decent tape solutions are expensive and a pain to maintain, decent tape solutions with virtual tape storage even more so.

The main issue I can see is what is the guarantee from these products that they'll still be accessible and working in 10 years time?
