Really remote backup

Tue Jul 22 19:13:57 GMT 2003 Really remote backup

This caught my eye: Backup Data on the Moon?

Perhaps a little more than you need, but do you at least take yesterday's backup off site every day? Too many companies don't, and in the event of fire, may find that they can easily get back in business but have no data. You may also find that your insurance company actually REQUIRES that you take backup off site.

Nowadays, it's usually pretty simple to automatically copy some or all of your data to a remote machine, but don't depend on that as a replacement for tape or other removable backup. See What about Network Backups to another hard drive? for more on that.
