Backup Strategy

There has been much discussion in the forums with regards to backup. Here is a quick summary of what I am doing to insure the security of my data. This may not work for everyone and may seem extreme to some, but this is what works for me. Having lost data before, I tend to now over do it a bit when it comes to backup.  I am using the Windows Server 2012 Essentials R2 backup program in addition to Acronis for the OS of the server and two of my systems (for quicker recovery).  In addition, I am using AllwaySync to sync contents from the Server Essentials  to the Storage Server 2012 R2.  To close off the deal, I use two cloud backups Cloudberry/S3, and Crashplan. Here is a quick chart of my strategy.

Software in my strategy:

  • Windows Server 2012 Essentials R2 and Storage Server 2012 R2 Standard
  • AllwaySync
  • CloudBerry/S3
  • CrashPlan
