Media Backup and storage
on Dec 15, 2009 at 3:01:05 pm

hi guys,

i don't know if this is the right forum but here goes:

i create A LOT of content. i shoot around 5 - 6 hours every week. then they all go to the edit bay, post and on to TV or websites.

right now i am working external hard drives. everything gets logged, tagged and backup (which means 2 of everything.

i am going through several external hard drives a month.

i was thinking to buy a Drobo but saw some post in other forums about a bug that the Drobo has and had to be sent back to the company to get fixed.

does anyone know anything about it?

the thing is - i live in israel and to get the Drobo shipped here is a big thing, so i would like to know all this in advance.

thanks a lot.

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 ?

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO.

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.
