backup solutions

  • Hi Guys
    I have been researching backup solutions for large amounts of data (say 10+TB) for “non critical” data i.e. movies, TV shows, music etc…
    I currently backup critical data on a 2TB external hard drive as well as using Snapraid for my NAS. I believe that this is sufficient for the important stuff. The not-so-important things are only protected by Snapraid. I’m not really happy about this but I can’t really afford a lot of external hard drives to make a full copy of everything.

    What backup strategy do you use for your media collections?

  • I don't how you could save & bakcup upon 10+TB of data without other disks...

    - ASROCK FM2A88X-ITX+ (SATAIII (6Gb/s) x6 (for the DATA), mSATA x1 (for the OS))
    - AMD A6 7400K 3.5GHz
    - Corsair 2Go DDR3 1333MHz C9 (x2)
    - Intel Corporation 82574L Gigabit Network Connection
    - COOLER MASTER G450M (80+ bronze)
    - WD Red 2To 64Mo 3.5" SATAIII (6Gb/s)
    - 32 Go SSD mSATA KingSpec Half-Size Solid State
    - Fractal Design Node 304 black (HDD 3.5" x6)
    - RAID 5 XFS
    - OMV 4.1.35-1 Arrakis

  • I guess that the options are really limited. I've been looking at tape drives but the hardware is massively expensive even second hand (I'd be better off buying hard drives instead).
    Online backup (unlimited storage space) are not an option due to upload times... seeded backups (crashplan style) are way overpriced.

    I guess that for now I'll have to live with Snapraid.

  • Look at backblaze... but they don't offer a linux client, yet.

    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
