    If these 200 clients are going to have a lot of file changes between 
the backup periods, then I'd say you may run into issues of the backup 
never finishing.  On a nightly basis, I transfer anywhere between 10 to 
150 GiB worth of data and it runs roughly from about midnight to 3 in 
the morning (there's a 'rest period' between each server's backup time, 
otherwise I could probably get it done within an hour.)
