I'm in the process of refreshing my file server disaster recovery plan and wanted some opinions to see what everyone is doing these days.
What I have been doing for a number of years, is maintaining a low end backup server with an identical tape drive in a storage space. In the event of a complete and total loss, I could pull the server out of storage, restore everything from tape, and work from that server until replacement hardware arrived.
Does anyone have any opinions on using some type of commercial online backup solution as an alternative to the above? I really like the flexibility of having an up to the minute backup of my data, and be able to pull down what I need on demand.
Is anyone doing something like this for disaster recovery? If so can anymore recommend any companies/brands? There are about a million of them out there and not too sure where to start. A very large portion is also geared towards home use as well.
