disaster proof hard drive -- iosafe.com, etc ?

I still keep items off-site in a CLOUD backup
in case of a tornado/etc, but would also
like something local.

Does anyone have some disaster proof
hard drive vendor recommendations ?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You mean a box or something?
My idea would just be...
Go into the cellar (if you have one) and select (or build) a small room made of armed concrete (alternatively a heavy steel security container).
Put a NAS Box inside and equip it with SSDs
Connect the NAS Box with your network....
This not even survives a tornado but also an earthquake....
Maybe it sound funny, but everything else is not really serious.
A tornado may throw cars around, what do you expect from a box, which is placed over the earth...
You can search it somewhere miles away...

Two or three hard drives.

Backup your data to these devices and keep them at different locations (safe, deposit box, etc).  If a device is destroyed at one location, you've got the other device(s) at the other places.

the most used system is having a set of disk drives with your backup, or image, and use one for each day or week to backup
if you want more security, store them in different locations
normal drives are very cheap now - even up to 4 TB under 100$

Mmh, as I see you have a cloud based solution...
That means you need something like a local cloud?
Or just a file system?

You get some from Western Digital, Seagate and more or less every other hard disc label. If you want to select your hard disc yourself, you can take Synology. They usually run with 3,5 drives, put some 4TB disk inside and you have cheap and large amount of backup storage. Synology supports a lot of applications you can use on the box while other boxes are more just disc space.... The boxes are available with 1,2, 4 or 8 disc and mostly linux based.

If you want to invest some more money for NAS or SAN storage, there are nearly no limits for space, discs and the price. But the larger systems are more for operational storage than just only backup.
