Default Tape backup for Windows and Linux servers

September 23rd, 2013, 12:56
I'm hoping someone might be able to save me a bit of research. I've been out of the real IT world for nearly a decade, so I'm a bit out of touch with current trends.

I've got to come up with a system to backup a Windows server and a couple of Debian Linux servers to tape. The system I inherited is, uh, not so good and in dire need of replacing. My initial thoughts are an external tape drive connected to one of the servers, which will run the actual backup.

Does anyone have any suggestions on hardware or software? Since we're a charity, money's an issue, so cheap/free solutions are better.
