Hi all, please bear with me on this, it may be long, but i'd really appreciate some input from the more experienced gurus on this. As I.T. Manager in our company i have to put a Disaster Recvoery Plan in action for the I.T. Currently we have an LTO tape drive in a Dell tower server which backups up 500gb fully once per week (takes 4 tapes and 3 days), with weekday incrementals after that (takes 1 tape), all across the whole system of 4 servers. Now, here are the options (loosely) that i'm thinking of; 1. Install an autoloader with 8 or 16 tapes so that backup doesn't take 3 days due to manual loading of tapes. Take tapes off-site. Pros: cheaper, faster. Cons: not as reliable imho. 2. Install NAS or SAN box to hold all data. Create wireless bridge (100Mbit) to our other site 200 yards away. Use some appropriate synchronsing software that will on its first run, probably take a weekend to sync. all the data across to the other site, and from then on, should be just nightly sync'ing of the data changes during that day. This could also work in reverse for the other unit, so that their data is store off-site too. Pros: more reliable? less human interaction to screw it up. Cons: Price Ok, so does anyone have any opinions on the 2 options i'm exploring? Personally i like the sound of option 2, so can anyone recommend an appropriate program to sync the data the way i want it? Do you have any other options to put forward? Oh, i'm also looking at putting a leased line in, but that won't be fast enough to use as data transfer of this magnitude. Does anyone in the UK have any recommended suppliers of leased line? Thanks for any advice offered.
