Disk to Disk to Tape

Highly Reliable Systems, a provider of network backup products, introduced a new series of backup devices that the company said would give IT managers a new level of comfort with the “restorability” of their networks. The multi-drive “Disk to Disk to Tape,” backup model gives users the same functionality as “robotic” tape libraries at a lower price point, the company said. The drives are labeled on a five-bay, Monday-through-Friday rack, each backing up a different day of the week. The user can continue to use industry standard backup software products such as BackupExec, Brightstor, Dantz, and others. The single and multi-drive backup systems are based on what the company calls “reliable hard drives.” The standard hard drives are converted to USB 2.0 and removable drive trays can be detached and transported off site.
