Best cloud service for backups

Post by pnzdevelop »

Hello!
What is the best cloud service for backups in your opinion?
On Amazon for 2.5 Tb came out 55 USD per month.
Currently testing Dropbox, there is 3Tb, for a year 199 EUR. but upload speed... :(

Hello,
for speedy uploads, I think you need simple cloud storage, such as Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure BLOB storage, Rackspace Cloud Files, and Backblaze B2.

I think Backblaze B2 will be the most cost efficient, and it has the advantage of being able to retain the files' Last Modification timestamps. The other "dumb" storages do not have that capability.

Of course there are many S3 compatible storages, which may help save some money. The most famous one is Wasabi I believe.

Among the more modern cloud storages, I think PCloud is the fastest one for uploads.

Backblaze B2 - very interesting prices! 4 times cheaper, comparable even with dropbox

Hi there,
Swiss Backup might be an alternative, too:
From 1 TB: 75.60CHF/year to 5 TB: 286CHF/year
