I am working as a webdeveloper in a media company (around 25 employees) and I am not very happy with our current backup solution. I am no expert on this, but I am pretty sure the current setup is BS.
What is our current setup? Well, we have a fileserver with a 500 GB HD (sic!). If one remembers, one manually makes a .zip files and puts it on that server. Thats about it. Apart from the very small HD, nobody bothers making backups, maybe once a month. I think my boss has not backed up her data for maybe 3 months...
I would very much like to have an automated solution that creates a backup from all important files at night and... stores it somewhere.
The problem is: the backups can be quite large. As a developer I mainly work with text based stuff, so my backup including email etc. is around 7 GB. But the designers working in that company have backups in the size of 50 - 100 GB (already zipped). And there are at least 5 - 10 of these large backups.
Because of data loss recently I am pretty sure management would be willing to spend some $$$ on this if someone could come up with a good plan.
So, what would be a viable solution for a company of that size? Everbody in the company is working on OS X, if the operation system matters.
