Setting up Off-Site replication

  • Hi All,

    We are currently using BUDR onto USB drives however we really need to get off-site working. Was after peoples opion of offsite in Kaseya and how does it go with Transferring full backups/incrementals. Most of our clients run ADSL2/2+ but some are still on ADSL1.

    Thanks

    Aaron

  • there are lots of threads in this forum about offsite backups. Need to use synthetics to keep the bandwidth/time reasonable. Also best to seed the offsite site manually to speed things up.

  • Also make sure that you set Compression to 'High'. In my testing this has given the best balance between filesize and elapsed time.

  • Definetly want to seed the backup first. aka, do a backup and manually take a copy of that backup to your offsite server. I've let two servers fully transfer over the network. On a DSL it can take several days to upload.

    Also consider quotas on your internet connection. With Rogers we had a 60 GB quota per month. Never have considered this in the past as we never get near it. After the 60 GB, it's $2 per GB.

    Let's just say that 180 GB backup is going to cause some unexpected costs. Glad it's my own bill and I don't have to explain to a customer why their internet bill went high.

  • How much did you charge for the 1st 60GB?
