We got a call several months ago from a local company that was using a
Internet based backup solution. Their system had suffered a dual disk crash
and they needed help rebuilding the system. Long Story short it took about 1
week, mainly due to Bandwidth issues and this was a pretty small 270.

While we don't think too much about bandwidth in house with Gigabit becoming
pretty standard. Want to take a guess at how long it takes to transfer a 4GB
file using a single session type transfer like FTP using a T1 (1.5Mb)...
Ding! Time is up! About 6 hours. Now if you can get a Broadband Upload speed
of 10Mb and the target can keep up that goes down to about 1 hour.

Now if you can get SW that will send transactions as they happen like
current logical replication SW does, then you won't need the bandwidth once
you get the files up there initially, but the recovery could take a while...

Is anybody using this? I'm curious about speed and cost?

Is it cost effective, are there other services that are comparable?

I'm current sending save files to one our local Windows servers, but the
data stays in house. I would like to look at the option of sending off-site
to something like this, but, like everything these days, it needs to be
cost
effective.

Thanks,

Ron

Aaron,

<VENDOR RESPONSE>

You might want to look at our new i2S3 software that handles
save/restore
directly with Amazon S3. Here's a link to more information:

What are others doing in the arena of backing up data to digital
mediums?
I
am just not a tape guy because that means I have to remember to switch
something out. Right now I have a small Java app that I run and it
FTP's
source from the IBM i to my Linux desktop which subsequently is backed
up
by
JungleDisk to Amazon's S3 service. What I would like to do is take my
PC
out of the mix and backup more than just source (though I am mostly only
interested in source as both of my machines are used for development).
