• Is it important to backup the transaction log?

    Over the past few months, we've been putting in a backup solution for a client. Their ERP solution uses SQL Server but ERP was set up by a different company. They have told us multiple times that it's really important to backup everything and truncate the transaction log. Is the log that important?...

  • How to backup an Amazon S3 bucket

    Would anyone happen to know how to recover from an accidental deletion of an Amazon S3 bucket? One of our interns (clumsy them) clicked on the wrong button and deleted everything. There's a ton of data in there. Could we sync the entire bucket locally? Anyone have an idea?

  • Backup a large storage server

    I'm implementing a large server that's going to be used as a live NAS for several other servers. The server will have about 4 - 20 TB of useable space. It will be on RAID 10 for performance concerns but we need a backup solution (including off-site backup). Is there a way to backup that much data?

  • What’s a good backup strategy for a NAS?

    I have a NAS that I share files with and it's used as a backup solution. About a week ago, my Netbook got infected with ransomware. All my files on the Netbook (and the majority of them on the NAS) were destroyed. But my PC didn't get attacked and since I usually do manual backups, I didn't lose...

  • Handle MySQL backups with Git

    For our MySQL backup, we came up with a pretty good idea but we're not entirely sure. To backup it up, we thought of putting the dump file into a Git repository, and the commit on each dump so we have the most recent copy / we can roll back to a previous backup. But we're not sure of the flaws...

  • How to do MySQL backups on a budget

    Our MySQL backup strategy is to replicate our database to a second server and then run mysqldump on that server to get rid of any downtime from table locking. It's working great but the cost is huge (Over $150 per month on that second server). Anyone know of another way to do MySQL backups cheaper?...

  • Should we use Duplicity as our backup strategy?

    Several clients have come to us to work on a few backup strategies. We've been leaning towards duplicity for the remote backup but we have a few questions that need answering. Is it really reasonable to do a full backup every so often? And is duplicity efficient enough to do a full backup?
