At my small company the boss told me that for every test in the MCSE track we took and past they'd give us a 3% raise or something, he figured we'd each just do one or two. The other guy I work with had some medical leave after for the next three weeks and studied up and then took like five of the tests. He got his 15% raise and I got an email saying that the deal was off the table.

That guy should have spread the certs out to compound the 3% raises.

What solution do you guys recommend these days for offline backups?

I used to roll my offsite backups to my many datacenters but now I am down to one as my company dumps it's illusion of being Enterprise and embraces Small Business. We have Veeam and I need an offsite solution for about 500GB or less of data. I would probably have Veeam backup to one server and then let whatever back that up.

If I can't get approval for anything, I'll probably end up taking a drive home at the end of the day because I don't know what to do if the place burns down.

edit: Rewrote my post as it was poo poo.

If you don't want to use an Amazon Storage Gateway, you can set up an EC2 instance with a 500GB drive, in a VPC with a VPN back to you, running as a Veeam proxy. Setup a backup copy job in Veeam to copy your backups to it, and be sure to set up a snapshot schedule of the instance so it persists to s3. Run it on another continent and call it a day. RTO is going to be weeks anyway if your office blows up and you have to buy new stuff.
