We ran out of space on our NAS last week, during pre production for the Easter gala. The NAS held up it's end of the bargain, it didn't freak it just spoke to us and told us it needed more space.
So we are adding an additional storage array but when researching the issue it became obvious we really like many organisations need to think about a solid backup strategy. Simply trusting this device, (which like anything mechanical has moving parts and will eventually fail) is naive.
I came across a great article, on how to create Business Backup strategy. Yes its entitled business but that doesn't mean its not relevant. I know many of you have these devices at home and the advise applies equally to you.
Go check it out, a backup is something you have to get right, if you loose your collections that is your livelihood gone, so take it seriously!
