I am looking at using cheaper ATA disk drives for a staging area for 
my backups.  I am at a point were I need to by more tape drives or 
implement a disk storage unit.  The systems that I have been looking 
at are STK bladestore and Quantum DX30.  My company has a few remote 
sites for which the backup performance would increase if it were to go 
to disk first instead of tape.  I would appreciate any discussion 
concerning using ATA disk drives.
