Yes, I was aware of this other ticket, but I assume it only addresses
LDAP integration - not the general wiki setup.

Indeed, currently the Peer1 tape backups will include everything on osgeo2.
My understanding from Jason is that file backups of Mysql databases
are not to be trusted very much since they could be inconsistent at the
point they are copied to tape.

Also, I would ideally like something more easily recovered from in case
something happens to the wiki database or if Peer1 becomes inaccessible for
a bit.
