I have an IBM x226 that I will soon be installing Suse 10.3 64-bit on. It will be a full LAMP installation and a Samba file server that will house about 700GB or more of data.
I am looking for a tape backup solution and may be able to get my hands on a StorageTek L20
tape library with two LTO2 drives in it. I MIGHT be able to get this all for free, but then I have to worry about what I need to run it. My questions are...
- Where can I get drivers for this? Will I need drivers for the library, the drives, or both?
- Is there any free software (Amanda, perhaps?) that can effectively be used to create backups on a weekly and monthly basis? Is Amanda robust enough?
- If nothing free, what can I use?
- I would also like to backup a few MySQL databases which will eventually be running. Never done this before. Can anyone point me in an informative direction regarding this?
Many thanks, folks!
