No More Excuses...

...for not making regular database backups.

I'm used to seeing price drops, but once in a while one comes along that makes me sit up and take notice: $155 for a 1 TB (well, 1000 MB actually) 7200 rpm USB 2.0 external drive that transfers data up to 480 MB per second.

OK, ok, so you're not going to use it for TPC-C benchmarking, but for backing up your database? Perfect! Especially if you buy two or more for safety.

And now it's affordable:

$155 in the United States,

$170 in Canada.
