Off Site Redundancy Recording Recommendations Requested

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking to see how you've successfully implemented off site redundant storage of video.

I have a client who is looking to actively mirror two years worth of video storage as a disaster recovery measure.

My limited knowledge of this niche application would look at the following options:

- Low res sub stream of all cameras to off-site archive recording server. (Huge LAN & WAN bandwidth rec.)

- Mirror storage on site array to redundant archive storage arrays. (Less LAN bandwidth rec but still huge WAN bandwidth rec.)

- Transport weekly or monthly mirrored Tape archives from site to secure client storage. Least ISP & server cost but possibly more client involvement. (Or RMR as a service?)

I don't know. Trying to come up with the best options but all don't seem to hot. Someone here has done better!! Any ideas?

Thanks in advance to the Hive mind of the IPVMers!
