    I'm just biting the bullet and switching to CrashPlan for Small Business (I had 10TB uploaded on the Home version so I have to re-upload). I looked long and hard at Backblaze+Cloudberry Backup, but Cloudberry gimps the "storage managed" to 1TB and charges (a lot) extra for "managing" storage above 1TB, and reviews for Cloudberry don't seem the greatest either.

    Meanwhile CrashPlan just "works" using a single client/provider, and the built in de-dupe seems to work fairly well for my backup set (large Veeam backups).

    Just signed up for a CP business trial. It is ungodly slow, have been through their KB. Hardly touches CPU or upload and it's been cranked up. It has been 3 days and is at like 7%. Was really hoping for something quick enough I could get a good copy of my VM backups offsite but seems that won't happen...

    yeah, definitely not great for frequent large backups. i backup my VMs to an external USB drive right now and take ZFS snapshots.

    Yeah, I hate the upload speed but it works for at home.

    Signed up for a carbonite trial, that one takes a backup, locally then uploads it(higher disk cost). So think traditional local backup sets and then a cloud back end, but it appears that it does not choke itself like CrashPlan. Letting them both run at the same time.
