backup on hosting
we want to ask what rule you adhere to when backing up.
Personally, we recommend that you make a backup in the following way: create at least three copies of your data;
storing backups on two different media;
storing one backup copy outside the office.
Only 1 rule, simple, don’t backup.
We, at https://www.hazi.ro store three backups (renewed daily) on a separate server on same DC.
For sensitive data we had on past a storage server in Canada to be absolutely sure about data protection.
Hope it helps, Florin.
Backup is for pussies.
The end is nigh.
The Buddha taught that the internet is, by its very nature, impermanent.
But important documents can be kept on a typewriter; when a typewriter crashes it usually preserves your data.
A crucial website ought to have four online servers.
These can get your data 99.99% secure.
Now add some cold storage:
If all four online servers are lost, you are looking at a lengthy downtime, but your data would be 99.9999% secure by recovering from the cold storage.
