Help Designing Backup Strategy
Posted on 2011-03-11
We had a backup strategy designed by a consultant, but there's been little follow through, so I am now trying to get my head around all of the things I need to make sure our backup is doing.
We have 3 Windows servers. One is a domain controller and file sharing, one is a FileMaker server and one we use as a QuickBooks server (and secondary domain controller).
We got a DiskStation DS1010+ NAS for onsite backup.
I could explain the strategy and all the problems we've had, but I think at this point I'd like to step back and really understand exactly how best to think about an entire strategy.
I'd like to make sure we have disaster recovery and baremetal restores as well as offsite backup.
Is there a checklist somewhere I could use in making sure all my bases are covered? I'm new to this world.
How would you start?
