    I am getting a new server next week from softlayer and want a good backup system in place for my customers. Normally I just use a secondary hard drive in the same unit to backup to but I want to take it one step further and wondering what you gentlemen recommend. It seems what softlayer offers ( the network attached storage and evault are too expensive for me). Naturally in case of a disaster I would want to recover all my customers sites as quickly and painlessly as possible. I use redhat 5 32 bit and cpanel.

    Never read up on raid unfortunately if that can help me in anyway with the second hard drive I'm getting.

    Can some one make some suggestions please?
    250GB should be good as it is the size of the primary drive I'm getting.

    You can always use R1SOFT for external backups, I have put an extra disc on mine for the backups only as it seems much quicker and cheaper.

    Obviously using external backups is a little more secure but nothing is free !
