Comment (by Amar Takhar):

 Still evaluating whether we will go with restic.net or go with a more
 comprehensive system such as Bacula or Amanda.  We really don't have any
 huge requirements for backups most of our files don't change often and
 vast majority of our generated data are archives which are already put on
 our FTP archive or service logs.

 Choosing something heavyweight will require a lot more long term
 maintenance in 9 years we have not needed to use a backup.  If we spend
 more time restoring a backup it's worth it for it to be more difficult to
 restore than spending a long time maintaining a complex system for quicker

 Whichever we choose we're not talking about any loss of data.
