    HP StorageWorks RDX Systems

    Looking to bring in some offsite backup system as currently just doing disk to disk in another building. Looking to bring in some devices that we can take off site

    I've seen the Storageworks RDX system which looks good although the only flaw I can see is that its USB.

    Does anybody use these, are they Good/bad/ugly?

    Or any other recommendations?

    Or The Other Option was Some Large ESATA external Hard disk drives and just copying the files over to them after they have backup up and Friday and then take them home on Monday?

    We've got some RDX Quickstor drives for backups. We have the internal ones which connect using SATA. They're pretty robust things and quite versatile as they just appear in your computer as a removable disk. Not had any problems with them so far.

    I don't see any reason why you couldn't do that. We use ours with Symantec BE.

    I'm going to be using linux box so would schedule a cron job to copy the data
