We are currently implementing the first phase of a High Availability/
Disaster recovery Site within 10 miles of our primary location. One of
these HA/DR features is a redundant TSM server and a LTO tape Library.
This Tape library will become the Copypool for the primary onsite tape
library.  The copying will be done over the redundant dark fiber paths
we are installing.

We've heard from people who are pursuing the tradition of sending
tapes offsite.

Is anyone employing any kind of electronic transmission or
electronic vaulting to do away with the archaic trucking model?

Sadly, tapes *can* go astray when given over to an offsite service,
as most notoriously happened recently in Japan:
