Do the tapes get taken off-site, or do they sit in the same location that the servers will burn when a fire breaks out?
probably sits on place, if not he wouldn't need tape changer, but would change manually :)
Once the network backup is complete, cycle this complete backup to tape which can be taken off site for longer term storage (after the network backup to 'hot' storage is done, the tape backup time becomes irrelevant).
today tapes are so expensive (not just drives, but tapes) that it's better to just have many disks and swap them.
