What Do You Mean You Don't Have a Backup?

Backup, Part III

Cloud Backup:
 

There is a whole world of options out there; I will be here to guide you in picking the best solution for you.
 
A few things to consider before choosing a service provider:

  • Amount of data you want to backup (a few GB or few TB)

  • Broadband limitation (Your internet upload/ download speed)

  • How often you need to access the data

  • Encryption

  • What do you need to backup (your whole system, or just few files)

  • Pricing 

For home users, ease of usage and pricing will be a decision point.

For small to medium businesses, capacity, security and accessibility will matter more.

For home users, companies like CarboniteiDrive, Backblaze and CrashPlanwill provide the best solution for the price.
