I would personally like to run an entire training lab on how it's
_never_ been disk v. tape and how it's about on-line + near-line +
off-line (all 3, no compromises) backup/recovery in the 21st century --
whatever (often multiple) technologies fit that.

People who argue only disk or only tape, and often limit their recovery
solution (e.g., putting fixed 3.5" disks off-line) are just asking for
issues.  It's something to look at from the on-line v. near-line v.
off-line standpoints -- not just "oh, we got a backup" solution aspect.

This is hardly something you can cover on an exam.  Best practices are
very difficult to cover, let alone they are fluid and change more often
than exams do.

You already know Red Hat as the entity dedicated to 100%  
no-IP-strings-attached, community software development.   
But do you know where CIOs rate Red Hat versus other      
software and services firms for their own, direct needs,
year after year?     http://www.redhat.com/promo/vendor/
