Offsite backup and storage

By cpuboy456 ·
I am interested in offsite backups.

My company would like to start offering offsite backups for our customers.

I would love to hear from anybody who has any experience in doing offsite backups. I'm not quite sure where to start.

Thank You

You would like to start hosting offsite backups?

Do you have a building that is Hurricane / weather proof?

Do you have Security guards / and people with security clearances?

Do you have identification checkpoints inside the building with different levels?

Do you have a secure network line and how many firewalls are you running to protect data transfer through the lines?

Are your workstations only on the LAN and not authorized or given access to the outside world?

What kind of fire protection system are you using and back storage containers?

Just a few questions a prospective customer will ask. It takes alot of money to initially start up this type of company. Both in storing files through the internet and actually hard copies of their tapes and data.
