Small Business Backup Solutions

By esolfisburg ·
I've run into a problem that is so simple it is complicated. I'm looking to backup Windows Server 2003 R2 and a separate MySQL server running on a separate Ubuntu box and I am just so sick of tape backup, there has to be a better way to do it. All of the really good options are outside my clients budget range. I've set up RAID for onsite backup, but I really want a better solution than tape for offsite. I was considering replicating the MySQL server through an online provider, but I am still left with what to do to backup the Windows Server that is both the domain controller and hosts the Exchange system. Downtime is something they can deal with, data loss is not. I send this out to the collective braintrust here, what do you recommend?

A service or a remote site.

You would either have to setup a remote backup server or pay for a service. With a remote backup service you might need to have twice the amount of free space to backup the database. It also depends on the size of the Exchange database and the speed of your Internet connection. I am not a sales person but the company I work for offers a remote back up services and if you would like to talk with some one about this reply in this post.
