Hmmm - very interesting, I need to examin that specific solution.
Reading the website I stumbled over this information:
What LBackup is Not:

LBackup is not intended for large scale deployment, unless used in
combination with some sort of file system management tool.

Should it be a problem to have it backup 200 clients to a couple of
xraids (perhaps to be changed to an xsan).
