    Lightbulb Swapping space for backups of server data!

    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-SUMMARY: Swapping space for backups of server data!

    Hey All,

    We are currently running a server with Rack Shack and are hosting a handful of client’s sites, along with a few start up projects still in the making.

    We are looking to partner with another hosting provider (preferably not with rackshack – for disaster recover reasons) with view to setting up a win-win backup solution between the two servers….

    Rather than renting a second server as a backup server or buying space with some other provider I am seeking to find a couple (at least 1) fellow server owners who would like to run regular backups of data between our two servers… Maybe using RYSNC or just a CRON to TAR and WGET files across on a daily basis.

    We are only looking for around 500MB of space and are looking to build a friendly win win solution with someone out there!

    Looking forward to hearing from you guys soon and having a chat!

    Kindest Regards

    p.s. thank you Web Hosting Talk Forums! It has been great reading these posts and getting involved in these discussions! Thanks for the service…
