do you think that if you choose a Dobro, you won't need to keep adding more and more drives ? There are three kinds of media storage in our industry - Videotape, Data Backup tape (LTO4A), and hard drives. You can call it Maxx Digital, G-Tech, Dobro, Dulce, Lacie, Wiebetech, or anything else you want, but you need to KEEP BUYING DRIVES to continue to backup your media. If you don't like this solution, you can get a Quantum or Cache-LTO4A drive, which is an 800 Gig backup tape, and then you will buy a LOT OF DATA TAPES. Or, you can offload your shows onto videotape.
So, isnt' there something that you can just buy once, and not have to keep sinking money into ?
I agree with you bob. But Drobo and Wiebetech are not professional products and lacie is questionable as everyone I know has a lacie nightmare story. I advise that you use professional grade products with good support. You will be much happier in the long run.
