Offsite Backup Solutions
Posted on 2012-04-10
I have a facility where I have 2 mission critical servers and 3 servers that are data critical. Currently, we are using BackupExec software to store regular data, sql data, and exchange.
I have been tasked with finding a cloud based solution to backup the data, and I've also researched some plans that will enable a virtual machine of the two mission critical servers.
The plans I have looked at do bit level backups of servers, which would probably be significantly faster than the backups we currently run, and with the installation of a mirroring device, servers that go down could actually continue to function off the mirror.
What I would like to ask is what are the best affordable options to look at that are HIPAA compliant. I have about 4-5 TB of data to safeguard, and the data is only going to grow. However safeguarding that amount of data in a cloud system is very expensive.
