Backing up lots of data

Microsoft Windows 2003 server - 5 users

Specs: Windows 2003 Server
We have about 225 gigabytes of data on a drive
on our Windows 2003 Server. It takes forever to
back this up across a network to a NAS drive,
and even forever to an external USB drive. We
have a Dell Digital Tape drive, but it is limited to
160 gigabytes. Any suggestions?

Do any of these systems have failover/redundancy?

Have you looked at any of the proprietary systems that replicate your data via timed snapshot and transfer it to a system that can then be backed up or replicated to a disaster recovery site?

Thanks for your response.

We actually have the data on a RAID 5 cluster. I was still wanting wanting to back up that.

As for your second comment, regarding proprietary systems that replicate, no ... am not yet aware of those. Please share one or two.

web search off site data replication for the different vendors.
you would apply the same principles but just not off site.
