We Sort of use D2D

By john.a ·
We use an online backup provider for our data. While making my selection of who to go with, I checked to see what kind of backup online backup providers use. Only 3 use true 100% D2D. I chose one of the 3. I also made sure the online provider was not located in a "mother nature disaster" area or terrorism area. Anyhow, I feel so much better knowing tapes are not part of my backup plan.

What makes you so sure?

First, any area can become a terrorist area. So you can't be certain that it won't happen. Unlikely maybe, but possible still. Also, what about a virus or crazed employee taking out the backup provider. If it is an online provider anything is still possible. There are people out there that have hurt internet business in the past causing whole areas to go down.

Part of any backup whould not only be your online provider, but offsite storage, and onsite storage of backups. Be a little paranoid. It is YOUR data. Having worked in the government at one time, I learned very quickly that anything you think won't happen, will do just that.
