We are happy to announced that we are launching our offsite backup storage service. We had been looking for offsite backup for our own data and finally came upon a solution that works for us.
We think that this backup solution will meet the needs of many people and so packaged the solution into 2 easy, pay as you go, plans.
For $1 per GB per month, you get unlimited upload and download to backup and store you data.
If you need more than 10 GB, cost per GB goes down to $0.70 per month, still with unlimited upload and download.
Access speed is relatively good from China (server is in US, we are using it for our own China servers) and we would be happy to setup a test account for serious customers who wants to try out.
Of course, there are free storage services around and there are dozens of storage services that cost more or less than ours.
As mentioned, we had been looking for backup storage ourselves and what we found met our requirements. So what we believe to be the value of our backup storage service is as follows:
- Use any backup tool, open source or commercial. You do not have to download and install a specific software to work with the storage. No proprietary backup format to lock you in as well.
- Support any way you transfer – FTP, SFTP, rsync, webDAV,
- No large storage commitment, why buy 20G with you only need 2G?
- No billing for upload and download. This can become important if your data changes and you do backup daily.
Most storage provider worth their salt would be RAID protected, we have that as well.
