Understanding that putting the tape away in a safe is a manual thing,
you could also put an HD in a safe...

One thing I like about the HD solution is that you need nothing to
access your files (at least with Amanda): only dd(1) and tar(1); it
can work even if Amanda server is dead.

In fall 2011, we were flooded and had to move the datacenter. I packed
the minimum amount of servers, but I also packed the backup HD,
knowing that I could use them with no backup server)
