Re: Backups?

First you buy a lot of tape. Then you back up each server to its own tape. Every so often you pull a complete set of tapes off the tape carousel and restore them to a test VM to make sure that you have a working backup. It’s expensive, and tedious, and a full-time job, but if it isn’t done you end up with this mess.
