Unix Web Server Backup Standards

The backup plan that was decided upon for 'permanent backups' was that since CNS keeps a 6 month roll-over backup schedule themselves, that simply having permanent copies of our systems done on a 6 month schedule would be frequent enough to keep anything around that was needed.

To accomplish this, a copy of the 6 month old tapes currently will be given over to us, also we will be given a current set of tapes created by a tar archive.

In the future, CNS is purchasing new backup software that will allow them to schedule these 6 month backups for us and turn over the tapes for our storage.
