Offsite backup for low-bandwidth customers

  • Hello,

    I've got a handful of customers that are using our KBU for domain controllers and file servers that are far enough out of town that ISP options are limited. For example, one of my customers is running on a T1, and also running their phones across that line. With that bandwidth, offsite backup seems totally impossible, when full images are somewhere between 150 GB and 200 GB.

    What are other people doing to make offsite backup happen for customers with slow network speeds? Is a hardware compression device an option at all?

    Willing to consider all options, anything to make it work. I'm running VSA 9.1.



  • We tend to only do folder level backups offsite and keep full image backups to local only.
