We've been adding several 1.2+ TB servers, and it has become no longer
reasonable to put a tape drive on every server, as we had been doing.=20
Our full backups were taking longer than a day, sometimes three or
four days, and things were set up so that it was more complicated to
do incremental backups while the full backups were running. Moving to
a single backup server that can backup AFS, Unix, Windows, and Novell
may make my life easier.  Eventually.
