Tape back-up software for sbs 2008
Which is a good tape backup software for SBS 2008. I have to provide a quotation to my client on this. He is looking for a tape backup tool which will be the default storage media of the entire office. I had seen a set of tools on web but I worry about the compatibility. I want a reliable software. I am sure there will be some way available that would be easy to manage also it should a set of different backup solution.

There are actual requirements that many businesses "MUST" abide by according to federal laws. Finance and Medical type businesses are "REQUIRED" by law to keep customer/patient records for up to at least 7 years. A tape is a cheap alternative to a usb drive also hard drives do not last as long as tapes. Tapes can last up to 50years.. Hard drives typically last (Please note that word "TYPICALLY") 5 years.. yes I know you probably have drives older than that. I have tons of customers that are required to keep backups of email and customer info saved away and tape was the cheapest alternative.
100-200 for a usb drive, 30-60 for a tape.. in the business world every dollar counts. For those businesses that don't have this requirement I say a usb or disk drive is a fine alternative..
