Dave, no progress on my side with the online backup -- sorry hope you had better luck breaking the contract ?

  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?
