Like most of you, I have a home network comprised of multiple servers, and even more clients. Data is backed up nightly to tape, or has been for a long time. But, primarily due to the proliferation of digital media, tapes are not cutting it anymore (plus, tapes just make me more than a little nervous). So, I was going to install a NAS (probably a Snap device configured using RAID5) and back everything up to it.
But there is another option, online backups (which have a far lower out-of-pocket cost, and also provide offsite protection). Lots of companies are offering this now, with pricing typically based on amount of data stored, so many that I’m looking for feedback on which to look at (and which to avoid). Does anyone have any experience with these offerings? Any recommendations (or horror stories for that matter)? Please share, thanks!
