For example the HDD fails, OVH replaces I then need to restore ...
by the way, the RPS' disks are on a network SAN and therefore with a proper redundancy system. And the hardware is guaranteed by OVH

The most important thing is where to back it up.

Ideally, it should be another server in the OVH network. eg: an FTP server (pity, none for RPS), a commercial FTP server based at OVH, a new server you want to upgrade to, ...

Apart from that, then it would be all about copying the data in another server or home/office computer. I'm afraid that for RPS, you don't have too many options.

With the pro servers, you're given FTP backup space and bigger hard drives, but with RPS, I cannot give you more options I'm afraid.
