I would like some input on an efficient and economical way to back-up our small business network (approx. 40 GB worth of data). Any reccomendations on hardware and software would be appreciated. Ideally, I would like to take the drive/tape, whatever it may be, off-site.

Easiest suggest would be for you to buy an external hard drive which you can attach to a computer on the network through a USB port. You can then copy the files you need to that hard drive, and then unplug it and take it wherever you want 'off-site.'

That is looking like the simplest and cheapest solution. I will recommend an external HDD with Firewire.

They've got some really nifty hardrives configured as network servers with Ethernet connections that look very attractive for your usage. And the prices are quite reasonable.
