|$50 / month||Up to 5 gigabyte / night|
|$100 / month||10 gigabytes / night|
|$125 / month||15 gigabytes / night|
|$150 / month||20 gigabytes / night|
The typical use is:
- One backup (FILE-SAVE) per day (7 weekly)
- One month ending backup (FILE-SAVE) for each month (12 yearly)
This equals 19 FILE-SAVEs stored in a year.
Get sent an email after each FILE-SAVE summarizing the time/date, # bytes and if any GFE’s were encountered and the time it took to FTP the FILE-SAVE to our remote FTP server.

The d3backup system was designed to manage FILE-SAVE’s. Seven in a week and month endings, 19 per year. But, as you know, software can only go so far. Hardware must also help us here.
If you do not have a RAID system, I recommend installing a second hard disk and setting it up in Linux or AIX as /archive. This way, if the primary hard disk fails we will not lose the entire archive of d3backup files.
