  • Or, instead of paying Amazon, use rsnapshot, which also doesn't use tape. Tape bad.
    • The difference being that rsnapshot doesn't come with bundled enterprise grade disaster planning.

      The main reason I'm interested in S3 is I'm a shit sysadmin who avoids having to control my own physical resources, and if Amazon trusts S3 enough to put their OWN data inside of it, then I'm willing to slap an "Enterprise-Grade Backup" mental sticker on it and trust it with my stuff too.

      That's not to say I necesarily trust them to keep it always secret (although Brackup might go a bit far to prevent it in that regard) but I trust them to store it in a way which means if I get caught in another earthquake, I don't have to worry about backups or boxes.

      For high value assets, that's well worth it.
      • I used to be all paranoid about how safe my backups were. Then I realised that if my house burns down, I've got bigger things to worry about than the fact that I didn't have backups safely squirrelled away on another continent.

        Anyway, everything important is backed up on the CPAN.
