Online backup service for small business, suggestions?

Recommended Posts

I have a small business and am trying to find a good online backup service specifically for business. I've tried Mozy but haven't been happy with it as of late and I'm skeptical about Carbonite after researching and reading the reviews. I have employees with computer skills but no dedicated IT staffing. Any solid recommendations are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Check out CrashPlan. I switched over to it after Mozy announced their pricing changes and I've been happy with them so far. I'm a single-user, so your need for a small business may differ, but they do offer a "family" package for multiple computers which may suite your needs.

Have you considered something like a local NAS with online backup? That's not very much space and having access to files on a Synology or the like may be nice, with local RAID and online backup to Amazon's cloud or some such.

Yes, rather than obtain an external drive, we can easily control our backups by using the online storage services. Nowadays Dropbox, Box.net, Carbonite are the top online back up service providers.

A lot of these tools give mobile-device access so we can access these documents through iPhone or Android-powered devices. One better characteristic they offered by on the online backup services can be a model assistance, which shows you iterations of your documents or folders allowing you an easy way to restore a file to a previous version. :)
