For 4-500G surely a disk backup system would be preferable?  Putting
together a NAS box with a couple or 3 250/300G HDD would be a lot
cheaper (and in my experience more reliable)than buying a DLT or AIT
drive and a bunch of tapes.  I would then just use Amanda and miss out
the step of dumping it to tape, this would also be so much quicker in
the event of failure.

Maybe something like this would be what you should look at?
