Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Any hardware model should work fine. An ML350 will be fine.

Seems like you are more concerned about storage, than processing. Make sure what you purchase has lots of disk slots available. Otherwise, you will be looking to add an external storage box.

    If your server just for backup purpose, I suggest you getting lower spec, low cost server, but with higher storage.

    That depends on which formfactor you want. If you want a tower get the ML, if you want a rack mount server get the DL.

    Don't overlook the value of RAM, network throughput (i.e. Gigabit Ethernet), and disk i/o (i.e. high-end SCSI, Ultra ATA, etc.). A nice onsite warranty is invaluable as well.

    If you wish a backup system, you do not need or want a server! WE use a high rely system. high-rely.com I have a 5 bay array, I have 3 drives for it. I use one drive in one bay as the main storage Then I use a second bay for the mirror drive. I swap our the mirror every day, and take it off site. The system, updates the swapped drive to match the main. This way I get my off-site storage. I connect this array to a workstation, you can then easily share the drive space, or use a backup solution. The nice thing about this solution, is if I have a catastrophe, I can always take the off-site drive and connect it to any computer and access the data! You do not need the array! I use a program called backup-for-workgroups.com for doing my file level backups. It allows for regular backups, versioning, and delete retention. I put the whole system in a couple years ago, for less money than an upgrade to my Tape backup software would of cost. I threw away my Tape library and am happy as can be.
