Has anyone set up an eSATA controller and enclosure for backing up from
their Novell servers? I've found a Novell compatible PCI card from a vendor
I trust and an reasonably priced external 4 port eSATA enclosure.

For $2K I can get 2 Terabytes of storage which doesn't seem bad to me at

Does anyone have experience with a setup like this? I'd really like to
do hard drive backup for day to day and use my tape library for more
permanent archive. Which will reduce wear and tear on the more expensive
tapes. I pay about 1/2 that price for one set of tapes.
