I'm considering writing a software application, that originally was going to be software for a desktop, but now I'm thinking making it a web application and monthly fee based service would be a good idea.
However, the part of making the application work as a web application is making me a little concerned, as I'm worried about database backups, etc. For applications that require the database to have frequent backups, what is the best way to make sure that client's data is not lost?
I'm looking to start small and then build up as clients subscribe, if that is the way that me and my business partner choose to go.
Any thoughts on keeping databases intact and backed up?
