Yikes! I don't know about William, but I need snapshots of a lot of systems
and databases on a weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc basis. I have hundreds of
tapes in off-site storage. The cost of media is a deciding factor for me,
which is why I've used DDS as much as possible ($4/tape!). Tapes (and
DVD's?) are really my only option.
