    This was discussed very recently and backups are often a topic of conversation.

    Re: Offsite Backups

    I'm interested in this too, though it looks expensive from the couple of sites I've seen and I don't think a 10mb connection will suffice! Maybe a good point to use for that 100mb line!

    Not that it will be much help, but a guy I met on a course from a local school has a 100mb line between him and another school so they just backup to each other every night.

    Re: Offsite Backups

    This is not the perfect off site backup solution but this is what I have done. I bought a Buffalo TerraStation and located it in a building on the college site that is away from the rest of the site. The building is connected by 1 gig fibre and I backup to it every night. The Buffalo TerraStation is in a comms cab in that building so its locked away from anybody who fancies a little play. As I said not perfect but it works for me

    Thats what I do why not have a look here
