Is Des Moines too far away? We can restore at 80 mph. :-)

Thanks for the suggestions so far. My boss now says he's also willing
to explore non-local services where we could merely purchase off-site
storage without necessarily having our own physical hardware. We're
talking ~5 TB, I'm guessing. Does such a service exist anywhere? This
is way beyond the scale of most cloud backups targetted at home users.
Personally, I'm not sure how well that would work as a backup, because
it would take eons to restore that much data over the wire unless they
could overnight us a few hard drives. But he asked...
