How do any of you backup your services.

I am looking to do some backup. But unsure on what direction I would like to do.

RSYNC, Bacula and R1Soft are all pretty common in the hosting industry. What sort of infrastructure are we talking about here and are you looking to retain this data for a weekly or monthly retention to go back to?

Mainly for me it would to be back up a server to a backup solution and possibly allow clients to pull backups when needed. At the moment I am looking at getting a storage dedi and getting cpremote but wanted to know other options before making my decision.

I would like daily and weekly backups including sites, files, databases for clients.

If you want to allow your clients to have access what control panel are you using? Some have integrated options available already to make this process easier. You don't say what type of setup you have, and sorry, I haven't looked at your site, are you running your own private network and plan on setting it up locally or are you looking to set this up remotely through a third party service?

I have not launched, there is no website at the moment.

I am going to setup my cpanel server in dallas and I have my website in dallas I will also be providing dedicated servers.

Shared Web Hosting and Dedicated Servers are my tea so to speak. I might branch out in other locations. But for now my focus is central.

I am just wanting to provide good backup for shared web hosting clients. So cpRemote is looking good but I know there are other solutions. I could even use cpanel backup in WHM but the clients would not be in so much control as to pull their own backups if they did something.

cpRemote is just a GUI for RSYNC that integrates in with cPanel to give you and your clients better/easier management options. Also, for RSYNC make sure you get your servers on open Gbps ports so your backups/restores are less likely to saturate your connection. If you are reselling for one of the Dallas area providers ask them if they have their own system you can use that may be optimized for their network.

The simplest method to backup your services is to make a bash script which will export databases and compress files, put all together, crypt that archive then send it to a safe place! Make sure that your bash script is triggered by a cronjob once or twice daily and you're safe!

How's that going to help him offer access to his clients through cPanel?

There's a couple of other unmentioned ones in here
Jet Backup runs pretty well for the cost. I have this configured to dump MySQL databases every 6 hours and accounts daily ( so , 5 MySQL backups a day).

This can handle 'snapshots', which is slightly different from incremental in that only the files changed get backed up, not the entire account.

For < $5/month, this is a pretty decent deal, honestly . I use it, and the only problems I've had have been addressed very professionally by their team.

Then there's CP Remote. This runs about the same price, but mimics the cpanel backup functionality (including incrementals) and only lets you keep 7 backups. It's alright, but I moved up to JetBackup because it allows a good deal more flexibility, including multiple backup servers, multiple backups a day (hence 4 MySQL backups daily), etc.

Is that a budgetary restraint? Either way, let us know how cpremote works out for you. The very best, sir.

Another for JetBackupManager. We recently switched over to it and it's been great.

We use both JetBackup and R1soft across our servers.

Another one to consider is: http://www.gk-root.com/GK-Apps/Restore-Manager/

I've heard nothing but positives from the above though I haven't tried it personally.

Nice find

Might give that a look as well, always on the look out for new bits of software and new ideas.
