    Default External Backup Solution

    Hello,

    I'm looking for an external backup solution for my Zimbra.
    My first thoughts were Amazon S3 and Rackcloud files, since its nice to pay only for the storage that you use.

    Currently my /opt/zimbra is 16GB and it grows maybe 50 MB/day.


    Do you have any recommendation for a backup services either its free or not?


    Thanks!

    I can recommend BQ Backup as a rsync backup service. It's cheap enough that you don't need to worry really about only paying for what you use and they are quick to respond to emails etc. They have quite a following among web hosting companies.

    Hello ringnebula,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Do you recommend that solution over a cloud file hosting like Amazon S3 or Rackspace Cloudfiles?

    Amazon S3: $0.10/GB + transfer fees (link)
    bqbackup: $0.50/GB (link)

    It seems that Amazon even with transfer fees is cheaper. Beside the price, is there any other pro/cons?
