Cloud Backups

Hi all, this is my first post, but I have been listening to the Podcast for a few months now and have my own home built WHS V1 server.

Dual Xeon 2.4, 3GB RAM, 3x1.5TB disks.

 

I was looking for a place to backup my V1 server to the cloud and I found SOS Online Backup and was wondering if anyone else has used them or is currently using them and if there are some opinions out there on the service as it relates to backing up WHS?

 

There seems to be a decent deal going on and they seem to support Windows Server OS' with no mention of WHS specifically.

Would like to know if there unlimited is really unlimited.

 

Any info would be great.

 

Thanks

Have not used or heard of it, but it looks intriguing. If you end up trying it, let us know.

I have read positive reviews of the service, although I have never used it.

If I understand correctly, it allows an unlimited number of PC's, but not

an unlimited amount of data. I had to search for the price per GB, and it

is quite high so look over their pricing plans. If I am wrong about this,

please post the correct answer.

Yeah, the pricing is all over the place, depending on which page I go to, I get different plans, the link above in my first post is $5 a month, the link off of their homepage is $10 a month. if you go to leave the site a "chat" window open up with an offer for 20% off their plans, but that link brings you to a metered plan page.

 

I don't think these guys know what they want to charge. Therefore I am staying away.

 

I was thinking crashplan now. Would be great if I could get my friend to join me with his home server and we can swap drives.

Crashplan knows what they want to charge and it is cheap for unlimitted storage. I use it and the only think I really wish they would add is the ability to see my data that is in their cloud.
