Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I asked a question on StackOverflow that was closed as "not constructive": Is Amazon RDS Backup sufficient or should you do your own as well?

I understand that my question doesn't lend itself to a specific, technical answer, which I assume is why it was closed. But it's a legitimate question about database administration policies and I'm looking for answers/advice/guidance from those more experienced than I.

How should I have asked this? Is there another StackExchange site that would have been a better fit?

Your best bet might be to ask first in the DBA chat room:

The Heap

The people there might be able to either help you straight away or help you get your question shape for posting on the DBA site.
