I’ve been asked about my opinion on backup strategy and best practices, and it so happens that I have some kind of an opinion on the matter. I tend to think best practice here begins with defining properly the backup plan you want to implement. It’s quite a complex matter, so be sure to ask yourself about your needs: what do you want to be protected from? The two main things to want to protect from are hardware loss (crash disaster, plane in the data center, fire, water flood, etc) and human error ( UPDATE without a where clause).
