Backing up the Entire Server xpost

For the second time in a short period of time I have had a client ask about a method of backing up the entire FileMaker Server computer. They see a need to have something they could put online immediately, should the server machine itself fail.


I don't recommend this as I feel there are several ways to have files up and running [including using a third party FileMaker Server service on a temporary basis] in a relatively short period of time.


If the client has regular backups throughout the day and at the end of day and has a remote backup as well, then I feel they are as covered as can be.


However, because this is the second client asking for this type of *safety*, I am wondering if I am missing something that I should recommend to them.


Your opinions are appreciated.
