Should I use local or remote backups?

When it comes to ensuring that your data is safe, never rely simply on local storage. You’ll want to take advantage of remote backups. You should always have an off-site/remote backup location that your backups can be stored too. In the event of a local system failure, the remote backups will still be available.

An example situation being that if a server using JetBackup failed then JetBackup can be installed on the new server. It can then be re-connected to your remote storage service allowing you to restore directly from your remote destination. Getting you back into production quickly.

JetBackup has multiple destination options to perform remote backups directly to the destination. You could choose one or many remote destinations for a diverse retention. With proper retention settings, you can ensure that you have days, weeks or months worth of backups.
