Re: Remote Online Backups

A suggestion I tend to favor for Windows is putting in a DFS (or similar) solution where by all data as Remote Site A is replicated (bit by changed bit) back to a DFS in the data center. We're using a home-grown similar solution for our Linux / Unix replication here. Come backup time you just grab the local datacenter copy.

We looked at a Data Domain appliance (and replication) also to de-dupe the data locally then send it across the wire for backup to tape / keep offsite. The appliance fills the gap where a local copy of the data is available, but adding an extra box (even a "cheap" appliance) would definitely be more expensive.
