I have worked in the IT industry for a lot of years and while a lot off very technical and sofisticated devices have been used to back-up, I have found that it all comes down to the users and how easy it is to back-up. At one site we use ghost images stored on another server(W2K A.D.),complimented with tape backup every day on 2 different servers, tapes taken off site. Another site we use the same, the tapes hardly ever leave the side of the machine even after numerous attempts to encourage this, still another we use a Raid Array plus an external HDD, taken offsite daily, the next site duplicates the main server monthly and daily backs-up the Data to CD. Another site simply duplicates the data to CD every week. Which is the best, all these sites where offered the same oppertunities for various backups and each chose differently. It really comes down to whats suits the client, as IT personal we can only ensure that our sites do backup one way or another, and push towards a backup that is cost effective, easy to use and meets the requirements,eg Data or whole systems.
