backing up large filesystems
Date: Tue, 20 Jun 89 15:03 PDT
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
