Why removable? Why not RAID or something?
RAID will protect you if a drive fails, but it will do little to help
you cope with (for example) your server being compromised. If you're
serious about data protection, you might want to consider both, but RAID
is not a replacement for a reliable backup system.
With DVD burners coming down in price this might be a good option..
depending on the size of the data you need backed up. For anything over
a few gigabytes you probably want either a replica server or a good tape
