    "The Institue for Backup Trauma"

    This is worth the chuckle, even if it's a PR piece. Hard to argue with John Cleese...

    It does. But it also shows that tape backup isn't necessarily the only way to go. Given the recent issues with tapes going *poof* on-route to storage locations, using a online backup might be an option *IF* the connection between the workspace and the backup location is encrypted.

    [edit]

    A quick search on their site and I found ..

    With LiveVault InSync, your data is protected every step of the way. Using state-of-the-art security, including AES encryption, VPN tunneling and digital certificates, LiveVault ensures that your data is continuously stored offsite at a secure, remote facility.
    So this might be a viable option from small to large enterprises...

    Hahah, that's awesome. John Cleese's boss is Michael Dorn, aka Worf from Star Trek.

    I'm a geek btw. :P

    Cleese's brilliance could make this video even interesting for non-geek types.

    I have a friend who works at Veritas/Symantec middleware backup, he's going to get a kick out of this.

    As a sidenote I was playing BioWare's Jade Empire, and found a character whose voice talent is done by.....you guessed it- John Cleese. Hilarious too.
