backing up repos

I am a Network Admin newly responsible for several subversion
repositories. I have a question about backups. Several of my
repositories are mirrored using svn sync in other geographical locations
and then the machines are also backed up to tape. I believe this will be
sufficient to recover from a disaster if necessary. Please correct me if
I'm wrong about that. I do have a few repos which I don't believe are
being mirrored elsewhere and are just being backed up to tape. The whole
machine that is. I don't believe that the hot backups feature is being
implemented here nor the repository dump prior to said backups. Is a
full backup of a machine, windows or Linux, sufficient to recover if I
have a hard drive failure? Or should I be doing hotbackups via svn
hotback and then backing that up to tape? I believe most if not all of
the repositories are using the FSFS for the database backend. Thank you
for any response.
