Within the house, I use Apple's Time Machine, backing up across the
network to a server that is connected to a Drobo RAID array with two
1.5TB and two 1.0TB hard drives in a configuration that is their
equivalent of RAID-5. It's starting to fill up, so I'll probably be
replacing the 1TB drives with 2TB models soon.
For off-site backups, I use Time Warp from Jumping Bean Software. It
functions a lot like Time Machine, but it encrypts the backups and
puts them on Amazon S3. I would prefer something that would let me
use Time Machine for my local backups, and then (on the central server
only) backup the Time Machine data to an off-site location (after de-
duplication, compression, and encryption), but we're not quite there
I have not yet tested any restores for either Time Machine or Time
Warp. I need to do that soon.
