Are you backed up?

Filed under: Web/Tech | No Comments »

I have been really good with backing up my data lately… I would say that I’m on my longest streak of being all the way protected that I have ever had. My webserver automagically pushes compressed backups to another server from another host in a whole other part of the country. All data on my laptop is most-nightly put onto a FireWire drive via Data Backup. This drive is normally kept in a fire proof locked box, but I’ve had some recent trouble with said box (namely the lock breaking).

Why does it feel like such a chore doing regular backups? Having a current backup after a disaster is the most comforting feeling possible. Even with paying for another server and buying a tiny FireWire drive, keeping current backups is a cheap insurance policy. The downtime I would have from losing either my server or laptop would be enormous.
