| Question of the Month: What's the best storage budget money you've ever spent?
Bill Bald, Wake Forest, NC
"The best money we have spent was on our IBM modular tape libraries."
"We [members of the Encompass HP user group] worked out a SAN design over a drink at a conference. Most of that 'napkin' design was installed at multiple sites, giving us a central tape backup for all servers."
"Data Domain for backup to disk."
"The best budget money spent would have to be our first Hitachi SAN. Next would have to be our second Hitachi SAN."
