Dear sales team,
I am looking to setup an automated, remote, Linux-based backup system to perform regular backups of a bunch of hosts running in European datacenters. I am envisioning the following setup with Time4VPS : 1 Linux KVM-based VPS coupled to an OpenVZ-based storage VPS. The backup software would run on the regular (KVM) VPS, as it requires a bit of processing power to run a DBMS, whereas the storage VPS would be exploited for the actual storage of large backup sets.
Is this feasable in practice?
Does it strike you as a valid way of doing things? Perhaps there is something better, more rational that I could plan?
In this expected setup, would it be possible for me to mount volumes from the storage VPS on the KVM VPS host as local volumes, using iSCSI or similar protocols? Is there a different, recommended way to exploit storage VPS space from a KVM VPS host for optimal speed and reliability?
