We first thought about our own backup system but the local computing center 
provides a nice backup infrastructure based on Tivoli, so asking there would 
be worth a try. 
The gui-client is ugly but dsmc works fine and can be used from scripts as 
well. The only problem we had were timeouts when transferring large files 
over 100Mbit Ethernet, which aren't an issue since our connection to the 
computing center is now GB Ethernet.

Just as my personal opinion: I wouldn't consider DVDs and (plain-)HDDs as a 
serious backup media but maybe I am to conservative about this.
