Re: Cloud Storage ...

The options for consumer level cloud backup are numerous and many have already been listed here. if you're simply looking for an online backup of your backups, that's the way I would go. Keep it simple.

If you want enterprise class, you have Amazon, Google and Microsoft and Amazon is both the gold standard and the best from a pricing and features standpoint. The kicker is that they give you no software to facilitate the backup. The easiest option for that, IMO, is cloudberry. You can get a full backup solution or simply a drive mapper to the service of your choosing. By that it mean it will make your cloud storage solution of choice show up like a drive letter on your system and you can work with it in a way that is familiar to you. It makes for a great roll your own solution that still leverages the benefits that those cloud solutions have to offer. Another great benefit of these class services over the more consumer oriented ones is that if you have a lot of data you can send them an HDD with your data and they will copy the initial seed for you. It costs around $80 or so, but if you're working with a lot of data and have a limited pipe, it's the only way to go.
