Pros:use the most drivers

Cons:do a good calculate

If you want to use this product you often meet another problem. How to use the SCSI cards to connect all twenty drivers in the library.Usually the big servers have six to eight slots for the cards. Thus if you want to connect all the drivers by on servers every SCSI card need connect at least three drivers for a six slots servers. This will slow down the backup speed. It is not a good way. How can connect all these drivers?

1.The first way you can use is use more than one backup server. Because every driver can know which server they connect. This will not affect the other backup server work.
2.The second way is fibre switch. With the fibre technoloy development the backup technology is also use the fibre. Now the famous solution is SAN. That is use the fibre network as the backup network. the backup data not go through the backup network. The drivers connect to the fibre switch and the fibre swith connect to the server this will fulfill the backup need.

So if you want to use this product you'd better calculate how many drivers you. This will help you much.
