How I do backup of my mobile devices

Recently I was asked how I do backups of my mobile devices. The discussion started when I told that I “survived” a bricked device without data loss.

Disclaimer: I work (well, was working, before we got spinned of into a subsidiary) for EMC. Part of EMCs portfolio is “backup” and for sure I learned a lot from my employer. All my own devices and servers are backed up, some of them multiple times. Backups, devices and communication is encrypted. I’m not using public services (Dropbox, Google Drive, …) for the backups.
