I’m sure you’ve all seen the 3-2-1 backup “strategy” where you want to have multiple backups on different “media”. I’m OK with making sure all my backups aren’t on the same platform/disk/whatever, but wondered what people’s opinions were of using the same backup program (i.e. restic).
I would think there is an argument that I should use two different programs, saving in two different formats for ultimate redundancy (say restic has some data corrupting bug slip through or something).
Flip side is complexity of setup, etc.
Currently I’m running restic, and then rcloning the repository to B2 for my offsite. I’ve tested restores from both, and run checks occasionally, but with this setup I’m pretty much counting on restic.
Of course if I did lose all my backups somehow, hopefully I wouldn’t lose my primary disk copy at the same moment, but it wouldn’t be ideal to start over.
Just wondered what other people were doing and/or opinions.
