FTP / NAS Box to Back-up Online server?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I have an online web server hosting a database which is encroaching 2GB and is growing daily!

It's a SQL based database which is backed up twice a day by the hosts so eating Data very very quickly!

What I'm looking to do is build a local box for the office which can automate bringing down these back-ups on a daily basis or weekly basis. The server is due an upgrade soon anyway but It then allows me to have the online back-up and also local back-ups just for piece of mind and also if I want to run some local development using the latest database etc ...

Can this be done and what would be a good build for this?

Would of of these pre-made NAS boxes do the job, or am I looking at a custom build and running some FTP scripts to automatically bring the back-ups down?

Thanks.

Why not use backup exec to run the backups? From a local build obviously.

Those Synology NAS ... How would they connect to the online server?

The server the database runs off is a Windows Server about 200 miles away, so this is to be a local back-up of the back-ups the server makes itself 200 miles away!

And thanks for the suggestion to Backup Exec but tbh, dont really ever want to touch Symantec software. Suggestion is appreciated though smile.gifthumb.gif

you can set up your own personal cloud to connect or even a VPN, the choice is yours and config thumb.gif
