English translation:Backup device that backs up to external (or removable) media
Explanation:
There are two main types of backup devices in use these days.

Internal media
Internal backup to largely hard disk drives is popular due to the low cost per megabyte and speed. The main drawback is the difficulty in physically storing the backup device separate from the live device.


External media
Usually this refers to tape or optical disc backup. Once a backup is complete the media can be transferred to an offsite storage facility. Technically it is possible to take backups to external hard disks as well (such as USB removable or cartridge disks) but this is not common in enterprise environments due to the risk of damaging a hard disk while transporting it.
