We are looking for a solution to backup the entire file system on our ten-server network. The servers are SUN Netra T1 105 and have Ultra-SCSI. We want to avoid NAS. Is a SAN with a SCSI connection available or we should opt for a Fibre Channel-based solution? I will appreciate your help very much.
Don't try to build a SAN with parallel SCSI. Today there is only one realistic choice - FC. There are several vendors to choose from. Don't rule out the backup vendors who offer SAN backup solutions and integration assistance.
