Stocks Q / Quantum DLT

As a DBA for HP3000 and 9000 systems, I find our DLT drives to be quite efficient. Although these drives are HP manufactured, I don't think there is (to my knowledge) any better backup device that would compare.

I am also an investor in Quantum DSS, because of the fact that I know how DLT works, and it's effect on disaster/recovery. From an administration standpoint, if Quantum's HDD division produces reliable, cost-effective hard drives for Desktop User/Networks, the next logical step would be to purchase a device to backup the drives. Quantum needs the hard drives to become accepted in the market place, therefore, allowing their DLT to follow immediately right behind it. This is the tie between HDD and DSS.

All hard drives fail. And by human nature, we purchase products by name recognition, reliablity, and cost.

any thoughts?
