Backups to the Future: Eliminate Tape Backups with FreeNAS and Bacula
Although we have simplified the near-line backup process here, it's only the beginning. Our simple setup has accomplished what we set out to do: back up our data to a networked disk. To replace tapes completely in most backup strategies, you need some sort of offsite storage/synchronization scheme, which I've not addressed here. However, once you see much faster backups and how much more data you can store on a disk, you'll be itching to make the move and get rid of those tapes.
