Offsite Data Backup

ONYX asked
Last Modified: 2010-04-03
My company is concerned about Disaster Recovery. We do backups every night, but they want a second level of protection. Are there any companies that someone can recommend that do this? I did a google search and it seems there are a lot of players in this market, but I thought if someone had experience with any of them, it would be a good first step. Thanks

As otter77 mentioned, please be more specific about your needs.  Are you looking for an online offsite solution, or a place to send your backup media? Also, how much data are you talking about?  If the amount of data is sizeable, an online upload solution is probably not reasonable.
For offsite tape media storage we also use IronMountain.  They are the big players and they are everywhere.  They pick up media weekly and set up a rotation schedule.
