I just recently started using AWS Glacier for super cheap cloud storage (1 cent / GB / month). There are several clients available that make backing up to the service completely handsoff (incremental backups like Time Machine). I haven't found cheaper storage anywhere. The downside is that it is an archival tier of storage, so you will pay to get your data back (5% of your data can be downloaded for free each day, after that you'll pay an additional 1 cent / GB).


Rick, which client do you use for AWS?  Fast glacier?

I have my data backed up on an external HD (WD Black) and a Synology NAS.  A couple days ago the external HD failed.  It's pretty new and WDs high-end longer-warranted model.  I was pretty nervous until I got a second backup again, took over a day to get the approx 700 GB backed up again.  Think I need to go to cloud-based.  I've been thinking about doing it for a while and AWS sounds pretty good.  Just wondering what client you use.

regards, David
