From others projects I manage, I back everything on internal systems of
RH. But I do not like the solution as this does prevent community from

I would suggest do that on a rackspace server somewhere, but then we
have a issue if someone get the access and erase everything from the
interface, so I am not that thrilled by the idea.

What about:
- make a server for backup on rackspace
- make sure it is hardened ( since it will likely have root access
everywhere to read all file )
- set some backup ( rsync, anything )
see with internal RH IT to make offline backup ?

First, we need to have a inventory of what we need to save, and for how
long so we can decide the size of the server and offline backup.
