I'm confused as to how much space I would need to set up a service with someone to do Off Site Data Back up.

Some Background:


We're a Small Business with 30 Users, 5 Servers, we run SQL Databases and that's about all I can tell you.

Please ask me questions and I'll get you the information and we can determine what would be a good package for us to choose.

Or, tell me about your Company and what package you use and if you have any preferred sites, please list them.

To determine how much space you need consider how many users you have and how much data they are saving weekly.

Or look at your current backup solution and see how much in total you backup per night and it will be the same to store in off site.

The most they offer is 50GB, I think I need something that offers at least 100GB

I use iBackup http://www.ibackup.com/ at a number of clients. I had great success with their personal accounts and their professional service was perfect for my clients. The pro service offers encrypted data storage up to 200GB.

There are modules for SQL and Exchange.

You can set up off-site file access to the backed-up data. And can create password protected user accounts to grant people access to data you would like to share.

As far as backup "snapshots" of your servers... you can restore up to 30 prior versions, including the most recent.

I have a 50GB plan that I use to backup my home-office. The way I have the backup configured, it stores my files as a copy (not compressed into a single file) so that I have remote access to all of the data in the exact same folder structure as on my server and PCs.

The prices are more than reasonable and, so far, I have not had any issues with the service, the storage or executing restorations of lost files. Their support staff actualy knows what they are talking about and every time I have called I spoke to a real human. Check out their site. It has a few demos that explain most everthing.

My vote is for iBackup.

Here is a link to their professional service: http://www.ibackup.com/professional/

It will give you the low-down on the SQL and Exchange module as well.

Good luck.
