I have my servers backed up to a cheap server in a separate Datacentre, this backup server is then mirrored to another server in a different Datacentre.

What i was getting as is when clients use the build in cpanel backup system and puts the backup in their account they have just backed up, so if the server was to go down and accounts lost then they have also lost their backup.
