+ - Best Backup Server Option for University TV statio 2

Submitted by idk07002
idk07002 (1467501) writes "I have been tasked with building an offsite backup server for my university's television station to back up our Final Cut Pro Server and our in office file server (a Drobo) in case the studio spontaneously combusts. Total capacity between these 2 systems is ~12TB. Not at all full yet but we would like the system to have the same capacity so that we can get max life out of it. It looks like it would be possible to get rack space somewhere on campus with Gigabit Ethernet and possibly fiber coming into our office. Would a linux box with rsync work? What is the sweet spot between value and longevity? What solution would you use?"
