Yes we use the Dell 132T autoloader over here.  It is LTO2 and we run
Veritas and the appropriate agents to back up 15 servers.  It has been
pretty good for us so far. Here are the specs copied from Dell's site:

Storage Capacity
4.8TB Uncompressed 9.6TB Compressed
   Storage Capacity
3.3TB Uncompressed 6.6TB Compressed

 Backup Rate
216GB/hr Uncompressed 432GB/hr Compressed

Sorry, yes it's 300G uncompressed and the transfer rates are 36MB/sec
uncompressed, 72MB/sec compressed

yea, got it from techdepot on a quote for $5199. I don't know if that price
is still good, but I would suspect so. Jerry Bowers ( [log in to unmask]
) is our contact guy there. CDW was about $200 more.

I saw that TechDepot had an autoloader on sale for around $9000, but it
wouldn't hold the high capactiy tapes and it was terribly slow on transfer
rates, but if both carraiges were full, it would do (I think) 3.2TB total
compressed. I picked the SDLT 600 for speed more than anything (72MB/sec so
it says heh) and is fibre channel ready. That and the SDLT's are super easy
to use. Dell makes some really nice ones they use across the street, but I
don't know how *nix friendly they are.

Looking more at the hardware side. I take it that SDLT is 300G uncompressed?
