Seeing as it's World Backup Awareness Day... If you're like me, you probably have older equipment laying around that could be put to good use. I recently took an Xserve G5, installed 3 x 2TB SATA disks, installed Debian 6.0 for PowerPC and ended up with a decent system with lots of storage capabilities. Gory details: http://www.networkjack.info/blog/2011/03/31/debian-6-0-squeeze-on-xserve-g5-4tb Couple this with iSCSI initiator software on your Mac OS X Server and you have some interesting possibilities for performing backups. Since the OS X machine would see this as a locally attached drive, you could probably run Time Machine against it for your server.
