yes, that's one thought I've had too.

In the new year I've proposed to one of my clients that I assist them in
building a nice little multi-ATA/100 channel box with big (320GB?)
drives and use it with something like rsync instead of amanda with an
aging 8mm tape library and then try to find some way to only roll the
very most important stuff to tape for off-site backups.
