Encrypted USB 3 256GB SSD external drive. If I don't have it with me, I
don't need it. Sync at home and work for backup needs to two different
archive systems. 
Comcast business lets me run what ever I want so I've thought about
setting up a thin client solution with hosting in my basement. I also
have a VPS with 100GB of space that could act as a mirror if I got
around to setting it up.
