Many online backup services for business claim a lot of features, such as truly unlimited backup and fast upload and download times, but often these promises fall short in real-life usage. The old adage “you get what you pay for” definitely applies. For simple file storage or sharing, you might be satisfied with a low-priced, consumer-level product. But if you need more for your business, you’ll need to be pickier.
The top business online backup services provide application and operating system backup, advanced file versioning, compliance-level security, 24-hour support, server and NAS backup and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) features. Of course, they also should be simple to use and include advanced training opportunities. For our money, the choice comes down to Amazon S3, Code 42 CrashPlan, OpenDrive, Microsoft Azure and Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage.
