You are backing up 3 terrabytes? 20 GB? 1 machine? 40?
I like my DDS4 changer. Cheap, slow, home use (or night use).
At the office, my choice has been big freaking netapp (snapshots,
yumm) and a tape 'bot.
I tend towards SCSI tape drives. External SCSI tape drives. Then
they can be easily put onto another machine if the server it backs
After you backup, be sure to try to recover something. I've seen
too many times when those backups turned out to not be actually
working and the person's life turns to shit.
