I'm currently facing the making of our Backup Plan, and I was wondering what's the risk of backing up my ubuntu server in a pendrive instead of DVDs or CDs (physical mediums).
The server is used in a startup company, and is settled in an appartment, so risks of fire (as suggested) and power failures should be considered.
The identified resources to be copied are:
- MySQL databases
- Apache HTTPD directories
- SVN folders
- SSH configurations
So, keeping the pendrive always plugged to the server should be considered a risk? What other backup ways would you recommend?
