Just moved the thread over from the old Dexterity forum here. I'm just moving over to a new IT system and in the process I needed to move all of my business related computers to new physical machines (dedicated WWW, local SVN and mail server, personal workstation). This got me doing some research and here is my current game plan: - RAID on both the local server and personal workstation. Just to add one layer of robustness that is pretty cheap today. - Run Bacula (www.bacula.org) on the local server. Back up both the dedicated and the workstation to the local server daily or more often. - Back up daily (hourly?, haven't tested this yet) to set of changeable HDs (3) that are rotated off-site every few days. - Burn incremental backups on CD for permanent off-site storage every week. - Mirror the MySQL database on the dedicated server to the local one in real time over a SSH pipe. My data priorities were (in order): - MySQL database on WWW server - Configuration of dedicated server - SVN repository for projects - Mail and files - Operating software BTW. If you just need to back up a single workstation and you have enough network capacity you could use a remote backup solution. I used to back up to Backup Solutions and they worked nicely for me (just needed to restore once). http://www.backuphelp.com/. Now I just need to get myself backed up somehow .. Maybe kids?
