Hi everyone,

What online backup solution would you recommend for a small company?

We currently backup our server (data, Exchange, etc) on a daily basis to an external hard drive and rotate the drive on a weekly basis.
It would help if the solution can allow us to restore files/folders. Currently our backups are about 400GB but I suppose a solution that offers us unlimited storage would give us peace of mind.

Any recommendations?

Attix5 and you can use their servers if need be. I've used this product for about almost three years and it has never let me down. You could try iron mountain but their costs are horrendus for starting up but they run on similar principles. We use attix 5 as I can backup laptops and servers remotely (believe me if is so remote you would hate to travel there and it's easy to restore.)

http://www.attix5.co.za/

Just a side edit, Their latest version uses SIS (single instance storage) and believe me that saves you a heck of a lot of space when backuping up data especially when backing up exchange and file servers.

Best backup solution I've ever used. And their service is even better.

Here's another solution that uses all free options.

1) Install Allway Sync - the Free Version - http://allwaysync.com/
2) Install DropBox - you can also opt for the free 2 Gb storage.
3) Open a free 1 Gb account with OffSiteBox - https://offsitebox.com/
4) Start Allway Sync and you will see there is already a sample job configured to use Offsitebox.
5) Just enter your details for OffSiteBox and specify the source folder. You can also rename the job at the top tab.
6) Click on the arrow in the middle between the source and destination to configure modifications and deletions.
7) Now you can set up a second job to copy from your source to the Dropbox folder.
8) After your jobs are set up click on the Job Menu and choose properties.
9) Now you can set up automatic synchronisation.
10) Make sure Allway Sync is set to autostart with Windows.
11) You can either set up the jobs to constantly sync at set intervals throughout the day...
12) Or you can set up the jobs as a Windows Task Manager job.

Then voila, you are backing up to two online places for free.
If you ever have to replace the backups, just reverse the sync process.
(because downloading each file individually is a pain - but Allway Sync can do it for you).

You can also try One2backup...
http://www.one2backup.com/features.aspx

One2backup offers secure bank grade encryption with automatic online data backup. It definitely makes backing up a breeze.

Only R45.60/GB per month
Volume Discount:

1 - 10 GB storage = R45.60 per GB

11 - 29 GB storage = R39.90 per GB from 1st GB

30 - over GB storage = R34.20 per GB from 1st GB

Your pricing is insanely expensive. R45.60 per a GB??? Really??? Dropbox is $19.99 or +- R200 for R100GB
