Cloning network time machine for offsite backup
We are using an Xserve in our small company. One of the things that i really like about it is the ability to manage (and be the repository) for all of the time machine backups.
The problem that I have with Time Machine is that while is a great backup system with versioning, it makes it difficult for an off-site backup - especially considering the storage space needed for multiple computer backups. What I have decided is to clone my Time Machine drive once a week to a external enclosure that i can keep somewhere else.
Here is our setup:
• 2.8GHz Quad-Core Xserve
• Norco Tek DS-1220
• Highpoint Tech RocketRAID 2314
• (12) 400GB Hard Drives (These are configured into two 5-drive 1.6TB Raid 5 Arrays & 2 hot-spares)
• (2) 750GB hard drives in a FW800 enclosure (stripped as 1.4TB)
Does anyone know of an application that can handle this? I am not sure if this is something that carbon copy cloner or superduper can handle (because you are cloning a drive that has files actively being written to it). Any advice would be great.
