Hey all,

So starting Monday I have a 2nd fiber line which one of my employees installed at their house about 15 minutes up the road from my house. As of now I am using the old USG50 firewall to do remote backups. I have several config files so I can easily run and grab it and use it as a primary firewall if the new USG60 which we just installed goes down.

As of now we'll only get about 90Mbps of throughput through the VPN because that is the limit of the USG50. Even the newer USG60 model only does 180Mb. Either way it'll be an AWESOME offsite backup (Which we are just over 1TB right now worth of data for everything!). Easily do-able with the hardware which we already have!

I am paying him $15/month for the static IP's as he normally wouldn't need them.

Eventually, using the VPN I will set up a failover server over there so if the entire line goes down at the main office it will fail over to the 2nd office. The VPN between the two will obviously sync the site data and I'll do read only SQL replication as well so that the database is also current.

Thanks!

1tb seems huge for mostly text and a couple of avatar pics.
do you happen to have some statistics on storage space usage?

Karl,

Our downloads area is what takes up all the space.

Thanks!
