    With Crash plan moving away from consumers I wanted to see what cost effective options people are entertaining for their cloud storage/backup options?

    Yes I have the option to be grandfathered in to a relatively cheap Crash plan option but I'd still like to pursue options. I have about 100Gb today to store and most of it is pictures/media. Monthly transfer should be minimal and access to said data should be all but non-existent since I'd really only retrieve files should I have a critical drive/data failure.

    That being said, is either Google cloud or AWS a reasonable option? Something else?

    Appreciate input!

    S3 for 100gb isn't much.

    I just a quick check against Google's nearline storage and 100Gb is ~$11/month with 2 million puts and 1 restore/other requests. That's probably overkill since I will rarely do restore requests and I'm assuming once the initial data is put up there, the number of monthly put or get requests will be well under 1mil ( although I honestly have no idea what a single 'PUT' or 'GET' constitutes....is it a single file upload?) That seems super reasonable.

    B2 from backblaze is cheaper and there are a lot of integrations written for B2

    I've got two domains linked to VM running nextcloud lxc vms. Hosted on fiber 1g up/down. Raid6, ups, dual 2696v4. behind ccr1036 (thank you Patrick) & pfsense.
    Let me know if u wanna try it out, to see if it fits your needs. I got room for several users. It's capped at max 5tb, because I'm the only user. But surely I've got more that 5tb, if this were to escalate.

    Never used Crashplan, I did once use Google Business Suite, and I've read many good things about it recently.

    Skydrev.com
    There's free signup atm. I will limit new users to 50gb if things go berserk. One thing though, you need the Google Authenticator app to sign-up, "it's an extra security layer." Doesn't work with virtual-drive-mappings i.e NetDrive, but for that I use another domain.
