I'm trying not to drool on my keyboard.  Combine that with a good,
deduplication file system like SDFS, and you've got a cheap, linux-based,
multi-version, on-site backup solution.  It won't save you from every
disaster scenario, but it'll cover the most common ones and allow you
to reserve your expensive tape drives for the uber-critical data that
must be stored off site.
