    I wasn't actually thinking of other media such as tape, I was thinking
    more along the lines of the same disk. The NetAPP box allows you to set
    a quota for snapshot - so, in an example configuration - a 40 GIG filer
    would have 2 GIG reserved for snapshots.

    A lot easier to implement I would suspect than serial media such as tape?
