Question of the Month: What's the best storage budget money you've ever spent?


    "Hiring a great storage professional cheap!"

    "The best money we have spent was on our IBM modular tape libraries."
    Jon Holmes, systems administrator, RedCats USA

    "Data Domain for backup to disk."
    David Dulek, storage administration lead, Fastenal Company

    "The best budget money spent would have to be our first Hitachi SAN. Next would have to be our second Hitachi SAN."
