Data Storage & Backup Procedures

I just want to make a couple of quick assurances about data storage, with respect to both security and to redundancy:

  • Currently the full database is backed up nightly. The backups are AES-256 encrypted and are stored off-site in a Backblaze B2 cloud storage bucket. I am keeping at least a week's worth of backup files for the time being.
  • The app server is backed up on a weekly basis. Older backups are retained for up to a month.
