The Backup Preview site contains a superb collection of information on backup services around the globe, including news, a Top 25 (although they don’t say how that’s calculated), articles and reviews. Over 400 services are featured (there are that many?) which makes it a pretty excellent kick off point if you’re in the market for online storage.
How Do I Choose the Best Online Backup Provider? With hundreds of companies offering seemingly the same service, choosing the best online backup provider could be challenging. Prices and features vary quite widely from company to company; therefore an understanding of ones need is important. Are you looking for simply storing data reliably and paying the lowest possible price? Or are you looking for a general storage as well as ability to share your data with your family and friends? Perhaps, you are willing to pay more for the ability to backup database and email applications in real time, as opposed to scheduled backups.
