Offsite backup services


OK so with some new hardware and a software overhaul I am revising my model on offsite backup services and looking to expand it with a special offer to the dopers.

offsite backup 1 PC

20GB $49/year.

50GB $65/year

100GB $99/year

250GB $179/year

Additional workstations on same account +$30/year

Includes remote setup assistance, I have Windows, Apple, and Linux client software available. We also include restore assistance in the event of major failure. Storage servers has been up and stable for about 9 months now. Storage arrays are currently just RAID-1 arrays on the server. Hoping to stir up a little burst of accounts here to finance a couple Drobo network attached storage units to expand my storage as well as my redundancy.

Currently storing 1.2TB for 63 customers.

anyone interested please PM me with your phone number and we can set a time to install.

What's the difference between your service and something like, say, Carbonite (unlimited GB including external hard drives for $100/yr)?

#1 I answer the phone

#2 Remote support/setup/restore assistance. Most other providers I am aware of only do email and or DIY via knowledge base.

With my prices I am aiming for a happy medium between home and business users on competing plans. I will most likely end up expanding the allowed space per user and or implement an unlimited plan of some kind eventually, but I don't have enough information to see how that plays out across a larger user base yet.
