Backup Strategies

I was having a discussion recently with one of my colleagues around server backups.  He likened it to the spare tire of the car.  Yes, you can drive around without the spare tire but does anyone want to do that for long stretches of time?  Probably not.

Servers need to be backed up.  Simply if a server completely tipped over it can be duplicated, rebuilt and put back into service.
