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

Guys,

 

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
price.

 

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?

 

-Dave

 

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?
