[Owasp-board] Offsite backup and another OWASP expense?

I wanted to get your thoughts on a potential expense for OWASP, and also
mention another expense.


Aspect is researching offsite backup capabilities and we could include OWASP
in the backup process if interested. The current pricing is $7 / gig / month
for a 4 year contract. We think this will work out to currently about $600 /
month for OWASP's content, which is about half of what Aspect's portion of
the bill would be. By combining the two together, we get a slightly better


Aspect hasn't committed to doing this yet as it is more expensive than we
were hoping but if we do, do you think OWASP should invest $7K / year on
this type of service or should we simply risk it, and not pay for this.


Does anyone know a backup service that would provide offsite backup to OWASP
for free or much cheaper?




p.s. Aspect calculated an average cost for facilities at Aspect, i.e., rent,
misc office supplies, etc. and our average is currently $672 / month /
employee for the past 5 months. As such, we have offered to provide this to
Alison for $500 / month for the next year, and then at the end of 2009 we'll
look at this again. Does this seem like a fair price?
