Possibly. In that case I'd like replication to a server at a different
site, which is infrastructure we don't currently have. May be an option

I guess I'm used to DBMS with transaction logs, that can recover
"completely". But if replication solves the same problem, then fine.

I guess even with transaction logs, you'll lose data if the log is lost
with the DB, unless the log is replicated to a server that's not likely
to crash at the same time.

So, in essence, if I have a RAID 1 (mirrored disks) and do nbackups with
tight increments, I should be pretty safe. Only way to be even safer is
to replicate to a different server.

So, do you have a link to replication docs at hand?
