Cloud Backup Suggestion
Posted 02 January 2012 - 12:55 AM
For an additional/last layer of redundancy, I want to get some offsite/online back up as well. I searched the forums and i saw cloudberry, using amazon s3 The simplicity of this appealed to me, but when i checked on amazon's price estimator, it was quoting me $700/yr for my approx 4TB of data. seems too expensive for me.
Does anyone have any experience with KeepVault or any other cloud backup service that works with WHSv1?
Thanks. and Happy New Year!

Personally speaking, I don't see how you'd get 4TB uploaded to the cloud, unless they provide a service to allow you to send them one (or more) physical drives to pre-load into your account. Even a 100Mbps internet connection would take a very, very long time.
For the individual person trying to protect their movies and music, the original files, plus duplication with an additional set of backup drives is probably sufficient (that's 3 copies of each file). If you're really that paranoid, you'd be better served with an additional couple large drives that clone the backup set. You could keep those off-site someplace.

Might be worth a look.

Businesses who use this technology are not using the cable company's broadband internet service...

Just to put things into perspective, transferring 4TBs of data over a 2mbps line would take roughly 180 days or 6 months!

Using duplication, the space goes 2x as fast. IN the mediasmart servers, we're limited to 4bays. ONce those get filled up, do you just start adding external HDs?

Cloud Backup Services providing mostly secure and reliable storage and backup platform. But i recommend only Dropbox, sugarsync, livedrive and other best cloud backup services. I rate cloud backup services on the basis of their features rather pricing plans. I strongly recommend to select provider who have following features: Synchronization, file versioning, file preview, restored deleted files, fully automated, incremental backup, can be able to access from any part of the world. All the above mentioned providers does have these features. For the secure cloud backup service these features need to look at before making any final decision.

I know cloud is all the rage, but how about an external drive (or two) backed up on a weekly or monthly basis and taken offsite (to work, a friend's house)?
I have yet to find an offsite backup service that copies files fast enough, is trustworthy, doesn't cost a lot, can handle file deltas (instead of always re-transferring an entire file if only part of it has changed) - and allows me to quickly pull back down my backed up data for a restore.
I'm a backup freak and have a crazy amount of redundancies within the home. But without offsite backup too, a fire would wipe it all out. Since I haven't found an automatic, hands-free option that meets my criteria (above), I have a calendar reminder each month to backup my critical files to an external drive. When my monthly reminder fires, I backup to an external and take it to work with me the next day. That gives me a copy offsite in another city - and allows a super-quick, local restore from the external drive if needed.
I used to hack CrashPlan to copy my WHS data to a friend's WHS (and vice versa), but the external drive via sneakernet works better than anything else I've found to date.

SyncToy maybe? Or a scripted RoboCopy?
