Online Backup Services
We had a tape drive go on the fritz a few days ago and the cost or repairing it is $4 less than buying a new one.
Our total full backup is 100Gigs for us, but our nightly backup couldn't be more than 1gig. Knowing how little it is, I was thinking of not buying a new tape backup but rather looking into an online backup service. Does anybody have experience with one, have feedback or any real world info that may be useful?

You may also want to consider a NAS too

- Rep Power
I've been using the free version of Mozy for some of my data. It backs data up reliably, and the test data restores have been fine and easy to do. They do offer a pro version, but as I haven't used it, I can't comment on how well it works or costs.
Hope this helps

Actually, a NAS would be perfect (minus the firesafe protection, but hey, if the school goes down Student_A wont need a backup retrieved.)

We'd been looking at Atempo - Uniquely Powerful- Press Releases but they had also contacted our LA, so we're gonna wait for them to get back to us.
Check with your LA.
I find NTBackup a pain in the arse sometimes, I would recommend getting a proper one that works across all your servers.
