    I have some TB's of data which I want to backup on a cloud server.. Is there any service that offers TB's of storage for reasonable price?

    Also looking for remote url upload service that can backup data to my cloud


    Any ideas are welcome

    has anyone tried backblaze ? It supports encryption which is good, says unlimited data ? really ?

    backblaze is the cheapest cloud storage solution. other than that, I haven't found any exclusive advantage with them

    I use backblaze to backup my photos and documents.

    What are the reasons you want to use a cloud ?
    Ok... a view reasons I can figure out myself :)
    - Central storage
    - Access to your data from everywhere

    But.... That does not say anything about the actual location of your data.

    I m not happy having my data outside my own controllable environment.
    What I use is a Linux server with Owncloud. I can access the data from everywhere with an internet connection through DynDNS.
    A backup of my data is automatically made to a Synology Diskstation.
    So when I am at home (also my workingplace) I can access my data even when the internet connection is temporarily out of action.
    With a server in the outside world you are lost.

    As I said... this is only my opinion... but it works for me and is affordable.
    There are a view alternatives also in the freeware world of linux.

    I've used so many different ones over the years since I do a lot of coding for my job and being able to access stuff is important.

    Right now, I'm a huge fan of pcloud. The free account gives you 10gb of storage, and of course they do the referral stuff so each friend you refer gets you an extra GB.
    If you want my referral link let me know...although you can just sign up there yourself :)

    The syncing tools for windows is really great, and FAST. Similar to dropbox, but less annoying.

    I just visit them and they are giving: "Sign up and get up to 20 GB free storage"

    Yeah it said that when I signed up, but it's a bit of a marketing thing. I believe you need referrals to actually hit the 20gb free.

    Still it's a great deal and I swear by them!

    I am in China and I use baidu netdisk. It is free. Just register an account and you can upload your files, at least dozens of GB space is availabe, if you use it longer enough, you will end up with above 1 thousand GB free space. The only problem is it is available only in Chinese, so you may need some tool to translate the pages to access it online.
