Anyone have recommendations for good offsite storage, we are looking at least a Tera-byte we want to back up, maybe more.

Be sure to read the pricing and feature comparisons very carefully. You can see them Here.

The bandwidth throttling and default maximum file size worry me a bit. Carbonite Pro only goes up to 499GB and that is $250, for over that you need to call for a quote. Upload speeds are a bit of a concern as well.

good link not sure how that would effect us, the kind of stuff we are uploading and backup are things like word document,s dazcgi files, uncompress video. But even at the high end shile im sure at most a single file wont break 10 gb we need to back up alot of data

I remember reading about mozy backup, which was $5 a month for unlimited space.

My issue with these online backup services is how do they perform backups?

What happens if there is a disaster at their center. Do they have off/on-site vaulted tapes? Is the data duplicated to another center?

Also, do they have a good privacy agreement? Do they notify me if there is a subpoena from law enforcement to look at my files?

Even better, what happens to my data after I've moved on to another company?

I've been thinking about buying two or three external drives and storing them at remote locations, such as my parent's house or a bank vault.

This from my link clearly says unlimited.

So what's that have to do with maximum file size and bandwidth throttling?

I'll give you a hint...the answer starts with a N and ends with a G.

It doesn't? It has to do with them being separate companies with different pricings. One is actually unlimited storage and the other is up to 500gb.

From my link:

How much stuff can I back up?

There are no limits on backup storage capacity. Carbonite will back up all the supported files on your internal hard drive whether you have 1GB, 10GB or more. However, users should be aware that the speed of today's DSL and cable Internet services will make it very slow to back up more than, say, a few dozen GB of data.


From Hack's link:
Spoiler: show
Using a simple "tier" basis, we determine about how much data you have stored, then place you in the appropriate tier each month.

They're the same place, just two different products. Amazingly enough, one the links does link to the pro site... :twisted:

Not to mention, one is seriously circumventing their TOS, but going with their indivudal service.

Carbonite and Carbonite Pro are from the same company.

Carbonite Pro is for small businesses and is useful for more than one computer and I'm assuming since this is a business thing, he has multiple computers. It also is useful if you don't want to be throttled or have a smaller file size limit.

Websites are the backbone of every business. Mostly people look for websites when they need any storage facility. I also did the same when I was looking for self storage SEO.
