There is a world of difference between an off site back up, and a data
warehouse created with the sole purpose of feeding a data extraction
system.

Theres a large difference also between running a MIQUEST query on a
practice server and exporting the *numbers*, and effectively taking
away a mirror of your hard drive to extract the information later,
with or without a promise to keep your secrets safe.

Has anyone heard any rationale explaining why the current system is inadequate?
