backing up large filesystems

    Are there better solutions to backing up a large filesystem than 40 megabyte
    cart tapes?  We now have ~20 tape full dumps and expect to double that soon.

    One possibility I'm looking into is using RTAPE and a Sun to back up to a 2
    gigabyte video cartridge.  Does anyone have experience with this?

Are you aware we sell an Exabyte tape drive now?  It will be supported
in 7.4 ECO#2 (which means only the Ivory-based machines).  (I can't give
a firm ship date for ECO#2 yet.) The tapes come in various sizes.  I
believe the largest tape is 2300 MB.  Please see your salesperson for
