Designing a reliable backup storage system

November 1, 2008

  • What data will need to be accessed and/or backed-up?
  • How much storage is necessary?
  • How many users will need access?
  • Transfer speeds, especially if applications and other data will be accessed directly from the remote disk drives.
  • Where will the remote drives be located? In the same building, offsite, etc.
  • What is your budget?

    Of course, each situation is different, but these are a good starting point for your plan.
