Traditionally, early backups were always done by copying the contents of a primary storage source — such as a hard drive — to a secondary set of storage media. In most cases, this secondary media would be a backup tape or even an external disk.
However, this method of backup had many problems. First of all, the backups required lots of manual work from the administrator. Also, this process was vulnerable to creating copies of corrupted files.
Because of these and other problems, developers created automated backup software applications that automatically copied system data to secondary media, while also retaining multiple timed versions of the data in case of file corruption.
But even these systems had serious problems.
First of all, they could be very expensive. A 30 day retention policy could require 30 times as much storage as the primary system. In addition to this, administrators often required multiple redundant copies of the 30-day backups, stored on-site (for fast recovery) and off-site (for major disasters). This would effectively cause exponential data growth, resulting from a backup process.
When you factor in long-term retention for legal compliance, file level and bare metal recovery, encryption, electronic discovery, courier and handling costs, etc… even automated backups can get very expensive, very quickly.
