This week we discuss a topic brought up by the OVH fire. It appears some people actually had a contractual backup service that wasn’t doing it’s job. How do you verify that a service you’re paying for is real, and is doing what it claims to be doing? Especially how do you make sure they are storing data offsite? We’ve got some ideas.
