basically, there are 2 approaches - an online backup service or create backups on alternate storage and send to another physical location. In case of a disaster, you don't really want to keep your backups on-site.

there are many backup service providers, but I don't know the prices, etc. enough to recommend one over the others, but here are some suggestions:

I believe the author asked for a "offsite" solution.........

Pergr,

How do you take the exchange offsite with the Dropbox ? Or the SQL Databases ?

Do local backup to a directory that is synced to Dropbox.

Kind of depends on how much data you wish to keep offsite (# of Gigabits)  Backup to the cloud can be pretty expensive.  The best and least expensive is to purchase a number of 2TB external USB drives and the native SBS backup program and rotate the drives off site.  There are many more advanced options available but they come with a big price tag too

From 60 to 100GB. I have a internal NAS, but still looking for some kind of automated transfer to offsite location :)

I would suggest looking at Carbonite's Server Plan, which includes support for online Exchange, and other database backups.   This is strictly a cloud backup.   No onsite.

Carbonite has a appliance that does onsite and to the cloud but doesn't yet support Exchange or other live databases.

I just checked Iron Mountains website...don't see anything about an appliance, do you have a link?

nor do they provide pricing on their site.

Carbonite will do 250 GB to the cloud for 799/year and that includes database (ie Exchange) support

This is not  an onsite appliance which also provides automated cloud backup...this is purely cloud and it's meant for enterprise datacenters wanting to backup up to the cloud...not for someone with 100GB of data.   It's no different than the Carbonite solution, except that it appears to be meant for Enterprises and not small business

that's an onsite appliance which backup to it and transfer to the cloud, however it is possible to restore the data from the appliance.

Also their price is based on how much data you acquired and it is not only for Enterprise.
