Get a separate box to run veeam for vm backups then use a cloud service to offsite your veeam backups.

Works like a charm. Though Im not hot on crashplan myself, I have other offsite backup hosts.

I run Veeam locally and then use Azure storage sync to get my backups into Azure.

I even do test restores directly from azure storage over smb and it works fine.

Research confirms that black is a color like silver is a color, and that beyond black is clarity.

Thanks, this was helpful. I'm going to do Veeam to onsite storage and then CrashPlan the critical/finance stuff offsite rather than the whole machine(s).

I need to put in a UPS in a tiny office. Are there any good 1-2U UPS appliances? In place: 1 firewall, 1 WAP, 1 server doing DNS/DHCP/SMB file share (it's running on a desktop lol) I'd really only need enough juice to power this for 15 minutes.

we usually get apc smartups but idk if there's something better I should be looking at

I usually buy APC or Tripplite for 1-4U. They all equally suck (fail without warning etc)

I am quite pissed at my fat man avatar.
I am too politically correct to say this out loud though.
I yearn for a reason to exist.
Help.

Be careful because a lot of small UPSes are really deep for some reason, or they are shallow but to rack them needs a rail kit that requires a deep rack.

The Eaton Ellipse Pro is a small unit but you can get a rack kit for it that is shallow.

PSA with some poo poo I'm reading in SMBs suddenly woke about GDPR

Don't let anyone tell you GDPR is an IT problem. It isn't. It's a process control problem. A business process problem. How to devise and enforce policy minimizing customer data retention is up to management, tracking down who is using what data is up to each C exec within his/her responsibility, reporting on that data is up to a relationship between those data consumers and your devs, and finally deletion may involve your assistance with orchestration tools to go and pick EU Citizen Jesus H Christ's data out of backups or ensure any recovery process includes a subsequent removal of Christ's data in live systems.

Don't let the entire business make this an IT problem.

Yeah, this is our go-to option for remote sites, although it's not cheap with the network card.
