What exactly are the downfalls of using a Blu-Ray burner? Are they sketchy? is it possible that the burner could just go poof on me during a backup?
(we already use tape drives for our servers, we are talking more about when we lose ppl (ie: quitting/firing) and need to backup the HDD from their previous computer so that the information is not lost on a wipe/reload/reissue of computer. tape backups are a tad expensive and we are looking into a cheaper [in the long run] alternative to using tape backups)
Any info on Blu-Ray would be amazingly helpful in this decision process.
Just a note: the info we are talking about backing up can be anything between 5gb to 80gb, depending on how much the person had on their computer, as we plan on backing up EVERYTHING, including personal files (mp3's, digicam pics, etc) due to possible lawsuits from the firing process, as we never know if they have critical information stored somewhere we failed to look. ya know. paranoia is a disease of the mind.
