Great Post.

I have been watching the Iomega/EMC stuff with interest and you have hit the nail on the head. This really does give a cost effective option for companies with small branch offices that need some form of backup, not just for a branch server but also for PC's within the office itself. Although network links dependant something like Avamar could be used to provide a backup solution also. Or maybe it's a cross section of both required depending on the customer.

I have to agree with Dominic. This product can indeed provide an efficient solution for small businesses. I haven't stumbled upon anything as competent as this one.

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
