    Hi Xavier,

    I can personally recommend Carbonite… I’ve used it for the past 2 years and it’s been excellent. Around $70 p.a. from memory, pretty sure it’s unlimited storage too. It’s always on and monitoring your system, and it’s extremely lightweight and won’t bog your system down.

    I can’t speak highly enough of it. After I lost a drive and it cost me $1400 to get the data recovered, I have been extremely loyal to this program :) Hope this helps.

    Another thumbs up for Carbonite here.

    I use Dropbox for active working files. This both synchs the files between desktop / laptop and does a cloud backup with (basic) version control. Then Carbonite for system backups.

    Another option, is Cubby. I’ve got this installed, but haven’t used it yet. It’s like Dropbox, except you have unlimited storage space synching between computers for free. The cloud based aspect has a size limit before you need to pay.

    One thing to keep in mind, which is the reason that online backup services haven’t taken off as much as they could here – On a typical ADSL connection in Australia, which is about 8Mbps down and 0.7Mbps up, a 300GB upload will take approximately 42 days to complete non-stop at full speed. Longer if you throttle the upload to allow your internet connection to be used for other purposes during that time.

    If the 300GB is a once off, and then you intend to perform incremental backups, you can investigate online backup providers who will allow you to send your data to their data centre on a USB hard drive. This is possible with Amazon S3 for instance.

    Just one of the many reasons that the NBN needs to happen sooner rather than later!

    Cheers,
    John

    Hi Xavier

    It does depend on the classification of your data, however for general data, take a look at Google: http://cloud.google.com/pricing/cloud-storage.html

    If the data requires additional security and access control, then we can provide a service which can backup from any Windows/Apple/Unix/Linux or mobile device.

    Please let us know if you would like further information,

    Thanks,

    Eleanor

    Carbonite is getting a lot of votes.
