Thanks for your speedy reply! I am getting RAID setup as well, but i want offsite backup in addition as i need to make sure there's no chance of data loss. This also means it's very unlikely we'd have to restore from the backup, only if both drives failed which hopefully shouldn't happen (fingers crossed!). So i am still very interested to hear people's experiences with this company and any other recommendations.
A good perk to having your own dedicated server for backups is, If you need to pull the drive and have it sent over to the DC where your restoring too, Just pony up the cost of the drive plus shipping, etc and bingo you can have a tech at the other end restore from the disk directly. (RAID 1)
On a shared backup solution this cannot be done...

Wow that is an incredibly cheap dedicated server, i assume that's unmanaged (otherwise i might consider moving our main server!!) I hear what you're saying about having a reliable dedicated backup provider and if I can get it for the right price i'll definitely do that, however i would much rather not have to set it all up myself and maintain it if at all possible (which i'd obviously have to do if using a 3rd party dedicated server)?
