We perform nightly backups of all our databases, so in the case of a catastrophic system crash, the most data you could lose is the current day's worth of new content. Please note that we have NEVER had a system crash.

The data is backed up to network attached storage, so it doesn't reside on the same servers as the production environment. We also regularly check the integrity of our daily backups.

All Springshare tools are yearly subscription fees.
