We do incremental daily backups of main data to LTO4, they go offsite the next day, and a full backup every week, per set. We have 3 sets - there is always one off-site. We also locally sync startup disks, Exchange data goes over the wire every night, finance database is backed up every night via FTP over the wire. I think we worked it out that we would only lose a weeks worth of data if the office burned down AND the van carrying one set of backup tapes crashed and exploded.

The idle man does not know what it is to enjoy rest.
