The term electronic vaulting is used to
describe the transfer of data by electronic means
to a backup site, as opposed to the physical
shipment of backup tapes or disks.
The viability of electronic vaulting depends upon
the availability, cost, and bandwidth of communication lines. It should be remembered that
a man on a bicycle with a set of magnetic tapes
can easily deliver an average bandwidth of 300
MBits/sec over a five mile range.
