We would like to keep a daily backup of our sql server, IIS files at a 3rd location for extra security. Our server is located at our hq (10/10 Mbit metroethernet). We would like to have an incremental backup of the last 5 days and the full backup of every month. We would like to be informed if one backup fails.


We would like to have the image of our server so that if everything fails, we can use the image to go back to the time in which everything failed.

What are the possible ways to do this? I would like to get info on the best ways (VPN vs ftp vs other methods) and recommendations on software.


Any feedback would be appreciated.

Along with the advice from this excellent source - BC - I also recommend posting a similar thread (make sure you acknowledge being advised to ask in both places) over in community.spiceworks.com's data backup.  Like over here in BC, over there in spiceworks, also are numerous server-level, excellent, backup personnel.  I am not a server-level backup person at all, so I will listen in and learn alongside you.
