MIS Remote backup solution - advice needed
Hi, we currently only backup our MIS data to tape (daily) and I need advice on two options - do I ....
1.go and setup an off site backup with a third party company - cost £450 p/y
2. Setup a NAS drive in a remote building (secured) and backup the data to that as a secondary backup
what everyone recommends would be gratefully received

We use sqlbackupandftp to backup our Sims DB.
It can encrypt and upload the backups to most cloud storage providers.
Since the file is only 200mb big once zipped, you don't need a paid solution really. Onedrive or Google drive works as does Amazon S3 (if you want to have a paid for private server).

I guess the first question is what problem are you trying to solve by doing this? If there's a problem with the tape solution lacking in some way then its impossible for people to suggest improvements without knowing what that problem is.

In that case, I'd go for the cloud-based backup. Nothing says "off site" like actually being off site!
