Offsite backups for KDE servers

Filed under

Most of KDE's servers are hosted in Hetzner in Germany. We also have a storage box there where we store backups for most servers (including those outside Hetzner).

When the OVH datacenter fire happened, everyone who managed servers but didn't use OVH still got worried about their own data and backups. Including the KDE Sysadmin team; we wondered if KDE's data would be protected if a similar disaster happened at Hetzner.

We can know in which specific datacenter a server is, and even choose the DC when ordering a new server. However, it turns out we can't know or choose the datacenter for storage boxes. I asked Hetzner support and they said they don't give that information, and "that may even change" (I guess they reserve the right to transfer the storage to another DC according to internal needs).
