What sort of an application?

Home use? Small business?

Do you have a lot of data?

Is it sensitive, requiring a high degree of security?

why are you wanting to use a backup server? you could get a tape drive and archiving software for cheaper than an actual server (unless you already have the box lying around) tapes are alot safer because you can take them out of the building and store them offsite just incase the building explodes or something...i use hp ultrium2 tape drives with 400GB tapes for my backup system with arcserv brightstore backup software for the backup management...works great..schedule a backup and you're done...i believe arcserv (computer associates) software can also be used for backing to an actual server as well..don't think it HAS to be a tape drive
