Thats not a backup of a backup. I have 1 x replica of a VM going to the provider and my site gets screwed (major power outage), I spin up my DR replica and have all my remote staff connecting in minutes. If I instead get a crypto and replica that data, my replica is fucked. This is not a backup.
It's the very definition of a backup. In every sense.
Let not argue and go round and round on this. Ill contact some providers to get quotes which I was going to have to do anyway. Just wanted to see from somebody with any experience on this on getting access to any form of costings without having to pick up the phone.
