Random ideas:

  • Have a postgresql slave somewhere else replicating info (connect them via VPN)
  • Periodically dump databases to .sql files and commit them on a git project

+1 for "Periodically dump databases to .sql files and commit them on a git project" (private, not published one).

We also need to backup all git repos (including /etc) and some more data (to be put in another git repo?), we should backup them by fetching to other repos, not copying the files.
