Re: S.G.I. system backup



Peter,

I've been using a format developed by DEC (Digital Equipment Corp.)
for about three years.  It's called DLT (Digital Linear Tape).  
It's reliable, and has high capacity.  Native capacity is 10Gb, and 
20Gb using data compression.  There exists the DLT4000 with an even
higher capacity.  The DLT is addressable with the standard tar command,
and you can probably do 3-4 sys-backups on one cartridge.

DEC no longer sales these directly, but they are OEM'd across the US.
Any questions???  Feel free to call.
