Hello all, I've been asked to help repair a backup system for a small art studio and wanted to ask for suggestions. They have maybe 6 or so Mac desktops/laptops and a mac mini server. They also have an older Netgear ReadyNAS RND4450 and a newer Synology DS412+ plus 2 Western Digital My Book devices a 2TB USB 2.0 and a 3TB USB 3.0. Both the MyBooks are connected via USB to the server. The owner of the studio also has another DS412+ at her home. The current system hasn't backed up in months, but was setup in the following way. All the current work being done is stored on the ReadyNAS which has 4 share folders. All users in the studio connect to those shares using the same master credentials. That ReadyNAS then backs up to the mounted 2TB MyBook on the server. About 1.5TB being used All the archived work is stored on the DS412+. Again, all users in the place have access to the archive share. That DS412+ backs up to the mounted 3TB MyBook on the server. About 2TB being used. I mention the connect credentials because I think a future task should be to set permissions on some of these based on employee access. CCC is on the server so I think that's what was meant to be used or previously used but I didn't see much evidence of it. I also found Arq on the server so I think they planned on using Amazon Glacier for offsite. Lastly, the server is being used as a workstation for employees which I think should be avoided once I get the backup plan operating. Recommendations? My plan was to keep the ReadyNAS and Synology as they were, but then move the respective MyBook to a USB port on each NAS device and have the NAS backup directly to the drive and not use the server as an intermediary. For offsite, I will set the Synology in the studio to backup to the one at the home. However, I am also thinking to have the Synology host everything and connect both MyBooks to it or repurpose the ReadyNAS to hold the local backups. At the same time how well does the Synology do incremental backups? If I leave the MyBooks connected to the server I think CCC might do a better job of the local backup task. Plus store a boot image of the server on USB. Don't think you can boot to a networked image. Lastly does the other Synology work well enough for offsite? Should I consider CrashPlan or Glacier as that's a lot of data to push up unless I can seed the backup. I have more concerns, but I figured this is a good start. I look forward to input. Thanks!
