Make sure you have backups.

What is the solution for that, remote backups?  And what tools do you normally use to fulfill that. (Assume mysql)

Hmm.

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.)
