| Question of the Month: Do you plan to eliminate tape from your backup process? If so, when?
--Steven Olson, network engineer, North Oaks Health System
"Not until I have another reliable means of sending backups offsite."
"We are looking to remove tape drives in all our remote sites. But, at the main data center, we will keep using tapes for vaulting purposes only."
"No. We still send tapes offsite daily for disaster recovery purposes. We also keep a copy of the data on tape onsite. This is an area where we would consider evaluating virtual tape."
