I need help from SSC members.
I am currently drawing up the hardware specification for the company i work for to provide a TS version of the application we design/develop.
Our solution will compromise of:
1) SQL Server Box (4 x Quad Core procs, 8gb ram, 5 x 146gb Disks in RAID 5)
2) TS Server (4 x Quad Core procs, 16gb ram, 3 x 146gb Disks in RAID 5)
3) Authentication/Web Server (1 x Dual Core Proc, 2 gb ram, 2 x 73gb hdd (RAID 1)
We are happy with the above, but we are looking to implement a backup system also. This would ideally be something removable so we can take backups of site. Im thinking tapes, but havent found any tape drives that can hook up to all three servers? We will need to backup roughly 500gb or data across the 3 servers daily (full backups every night, weekly and monthly).
Any ideas? Or should i be looking at a small scale iSCSI SAN with a single tape backup?
P.S Sorry about the "Quality" of this post. I am in a bit of a rush at the moment! I will try and revise it later.
