We thought we'd share our perspective as happy customers of Backblaze's online backup service. Although our core company backup activities are looked after internally by our IT staff, management laptops were a loose end that required manual intervention. We had tried other solutions in the past, but nothing was satisfactory. It took time to back these machines up, but more importantly, it didn't get done as often as it should, which was an invitation to disaster. Backblaze was a perfect solution. Downloading and installing the small utility onto the laptops was simple, and it is truly unobtrusive, operating in the background with no perceivable performance penalty. Although we have yet to do a recovery, we checked that we could access our data, and it was indeed readily available. The cost is absolutely minimal, versus the time and interruption required for manual backup, as well as the potential risk from procrastination. Thus we whole heartedly recommend this service to anyone who wishes to have data security without the constant hassles associated with traditional backup approaches.
