Cloud Backup



  • Hi.

    I want , if company allow me, to make a backup copy of all the data company in the Cloud.

    My idea is make a "mirror" of the local Data in the cloud the weekend, all the data including VMs and Databases is about 6TB.

    The Backup will be only recover in case of a big emergency, I have a Nas and Tape Backup.

    Looking in Amazon I see two options S3 and Glaicer, but I'm not sure what's the best option in my case, or if there are other cloud providers.

    Can someone guide me with this ?

    Thanks


  • Service Provider

    Backblaze B2 is similar to S3. They are here in a community and NTG is a partner with them 🙂

    Of course Rackspace and Azure also have similar offerings.

    S3 is for "nearline" storage. Things that you are going to access quickly. Glacier is archival storage, things that you can wait a bit to retrieve and will not retrieve often. Glacier is much cheaper to store, but much more expensive to retrieve. So if you are very unlikely to need to retrieve it and don't need it quickly, Glacier is better.

    Thanks, I think Glacier It's best option in my case.

    Can I make a Mirror Copy in Glaicer ?

    I'm not sure. Grab something like CloudBerry and you will get a good feel for options.
