Re: How to Manage the Increasing Backup Requirements of a Growing Library??
I'm trying to figure out the economics of the ElephantDrive option when you can buy an Iomega 1TB StorCenter NAS (Gigabit ethernet) for about $340. It seems like ElephantDrive is relatively expensive, especially when you factor in your time waiting for uploading because you won't get the transfer rate for an online storage source that you will get with a gigabit ethernet connection to a NAS.
Why not go that route and when you fill it up, buy another one, or use some combination of a NAS with USB removable drives for backup. As you fill removable backups, take them somewhere else for storage and lock them up. That way you have one copy on your network and one back-up copy off site.
Just my $0.02. Please help me understand how the ElephantDrive at that price makes sense.
