Thanks to everyone! This was a great discussion.
So here is how things ended up:
On the hardware side, I can get a Exabyte (Tandberg Data) 3120, HH -
LTO1 drive (100/200 GB), an Adaptec 29320LPE Ultra 360 SCSI card and
a 68 bin VHD internal cable with terminators for under $1000, all
Based on the extensive RAID thread we just had, I bought a 3ware
9650SE card and 4 WD3200JS 320GB drives for another project. Total
cost for the card (4 port, low profile) was $930. I just installed
everything and it worked the first time. 3ware is great!
I am going to build a backup server around another 9650SE RAID array
(probably 8 drives X 320 GB) and the Exabyte LTO drive. I estimate
the total cost will be under $4K for everything.
Finally, based on all the money I saved, I made a donation to CentOS!
