Im looking for a company who can offer us a Guranteed offsite backup service with 100% reliability for our data as its extreamly important.
I am aware that its our own Responsability to ensure we have backups and we do keep local ones but i need a company who we can rely on to backup our data monthly which gurantee the data to be safe, secure and recoverable IF the worst should happen.
Good that you know you will be growing over 180GB over time, this will allow you to plan properly. As far as the guarantee, this would be something you can simply compare or get reports on. You probably want to make sure the data is in a diff datacenter / state maybe even coast.
I have not come across any backup solutions which could offer 100% reliability as things can fail and maybe because the solutions I have been looking at are low cost solutions.
Perhaps, one solution might be to use 2 backup solutions from different service providers from different states or countries. The likelihood of both failing at the same time would inevitably be slim. You may want to also consider a local backup solution as an additional backup together with the remote ones, ie a secondary harddisk or NAS.
Well, here's the thing. Let's say you find a gauranteed online backup provider and something happens and you can't restore. What good will that gaurantee do? Get you your monthly fees back at most. My point being it's a false sense of security. Find someone that's reliable and stable and if you're paying extra for that gaurantee find out what it exactly covers and to what extent.
