Make sure you have backups.
Don't let this happen to your site
What is the solution for that, remote backups? And what tools do you normally use to fulfill that. (Assume mysql)

Rackspace had a massive failure that resulted in data loss & they're the only website to be affected by it?

If your db supports it, do something like log shipping, or remote replication.
For filesystem backup, you can have your user-upload code add a FTP operation to an asynchronous queue, or even something as dopey as emailing out a compressed copy.
Under .net, you can set a FileSystemWatcher object to point to the directory, and take action when it sees a new file appear (or an update to an existing file, etc.)
