    Sure. There are a lot more companies doing it since we started, many of which started out as our resellers, but there's still room for good backup services.

    Sure there is a market for backups and depending on which market you target it can be pretty lucrative.
    For my own needs I use a combination of active/passive servers + offsite Rdiff backup (Hi Scott!)

    For my customers (for their laptops / desktops) I'm looking to resell a decent backup solution.
    The added value will be in the fact that I can personally set their backups up and help them with questions.
    Many small tech companies should pick up backup solutions for their customers, it just makes sense.

    I personally do not use back up services. I have servers in multiple off site DC's that I use for back ups. I just don't trust companies that may cut down on hardware to save money. A back up machine in my opinion needs to be the same as a production machine (RAC card, Hardware raid 1 etc.)

    I have servers located in both the US and in the UK and i use a second hard drive as a backup solution in the same server. I also backup to an offsite location for extra piece of mind. This can work out quite costly so i charge a small fee for the site/files to be reinstated.
