Quick Plug

For the last year or so, I’ve been buying some online backup storage from the excellent folks at rsync.net. Their support pages and website shows every sign of their being a company with a great deal of clue, I like the way they do business:

All support is handled by engineers. No first level techs or ticket systems.

NO data will EVER be released to LEAs/TLAs without direct order by court with jurisdiction.

and they offer a wide variety of useful access methods, such as rsync, SVN, FTP and WebDAV. There’s even a discount for free software developers. Highly recommended.

  1. Interesting offering. I like the feature set (rsync, svn, ftp, webdav). Though I prefer the pricing model of Amazon’s S3, which I currently use with JungleDisk. I add extra encryption to certain files as necessary, but overall it does a decent job.

    S3 is pretty redundant (minus last weeks hiccup) with redundancy in multiple DC’s. rsync.net cost: $2.80/GB/mo. S3 is $0.15/GB/mo. Though with Amazon you pay for data transfer and requests, though I still do well under $2.80/GB. I’d say with my data I’m doing

    Tape backups have been getting on my nerves for a while. I guess rsync.net has a new discounted customer coming up. :-)

    Be sure to get a beer or similar substance from me at FOSDEM for your reseller comission. *grin*
