I have a client whose business is hosted on a server in his office. He takes backups of the (Sql2005) database every day, with off-site copies taken monthly... and stores it on the server's C: drive. The server is running Win2008, and the application is written in a mix of Classic ASP and ASP.Net running on Framework 2.0. It uses TLS 1.1 protocols for SSL. In the event of a failure of his server's hard drive, or a disaster in the office, even if he had up-to-date copies of the application (there are no backups as such, each file just gets renamed to ..._Back or ..._copy or something - no naming scheme - and a newer version gets copied in), there's no way he'd find an external hosting company with a setup that could be quickly configured, and if replacing his server I'm not even sure I could easily get my hands on the server op system. So it would be a major upgrade / reconfigure at a time of maximum urgency. I've explained this to him many times but he still says he's trying to "justify the expenditure". WTF | :WTF:
