Online Backups

I'm looking for some feedback regarding online backup companies.  I'm a technology solutions provider for small / medium size business and have been using the traditional tape (4MM & DLT) and software (Veritas BackupExec with the appropriate agents) solutions.  I want to partner / resell an online solution as an alternative to the tape changing / rotation routine.

The companies that I am looking at are:

backup.com (slightly too low-end and expensive)
swapdrive.com
ibackup.com (promising since they have an exchange option and decent rates)

I'd like some feedback on these and any other solutions that others are using successfully.  

Thank you in advance.

FD,

I use a company called connected.com, I have about 20 PC's being backed up offsite by them and they work awesome.  Retrival is easy and installation and setup is easy

Good Luck

Why don't you try NetStore ? They work with British Telecom, in selling a product for residencial users and, they have already made a presentation to us, PT, and they are awesome. Software, both Server and Client Side are easy to use and very low on resources.

Try it out,

Best Regards !
