REMOTE BACKUP COMPUTER DATA SECURITY
Posted on 2007-07-20
I have following problem which I need to solve. I work at home and keep my server at home, it contains all my data, sql datadases, exchange server etc. Obviously my data are very important to me and back and ability to recover from any failure is critical to me.
Normal company usualy changes backup discs in some schema so that they are out of office and only currently used backup medium is in the machine. For me, as I work at home, this does not work, I am not willing to go somewhere (bank, my friend or whereever else, just to store my circulating backup drives).
Therefore I decided to buy software Peersync which is very good in data replication over WAN/LAN. I bought cheap computer with 500 GB capacity and I found reasonable place where to store it. During the night peersync replicate all the data I need to this REMOTE computer, as it replicates only changes even in extremely big file, this is OK.
what I need is to ensure that nobody can read the data on remote computer when this is stolen. It is not probable but I have to be sure.
I will have only remote access to that computer normally .
Can you advice what should be the best solution?
