Question

Newtwork backup storage solution

I have a small business and currently I have 3 computers( Win10 Pro) on a Gigabit network. The network is wired (CAT6) connected to a Gigabit Switch. I would like to have a suitable backup storage device connected to the switch (2TB RAID1 config.). I want a backup scheme whereby all computers in the network will be incrementally backed-up each day at a preset time. Please help me with a recommendation for a hardware and software solution to accomplish this. I do not intend to use the backup disk for other storage than backup. I would be very grateful for your suggestions.

Why not just sync?

If I had to do this I'd sync using any number of sync apps and maybe AutoIT to automate the work.

As this is a small business I'm sure you have staff for the IT stuff. The scripting is very entry level but I can't write yours since I've yet to find two networks to be the same.

Back up storage

Hi, the easiest and most reliable business back up system is now the cloud! All types and sizes of businesses are backing up their data over their internet connection and storing is in data centres. you can set back-up times and rules.

Where do you then store the hard disk after back up? who has access? what happens if the data is corrupted? is your data protected if your offices flood/fire?

Did you find a solution? Happy to talk further!
