charles skipped what i see as a highly critical question, personal
backup.

--As for the rest, it is mine.

Personal system: Important files are on the fileserver, on a RAID-Z volume. It's backed up nightly using Tarsnap; the keyfiles to that are on two machines, and two USB drives. (Including an Ironkey in the firesafe.)

Tarsnap is worth looking at if you are looking at an offsite backup for small-scale use: On a per-GB basis, it's not especially cheap, but it bills on a per-byte basis, so if you aren't storing hundreds of GB, it's cheap.
