What is the best online backups solution for PCs? I am looking for these options as a vendor, so a good affiliate/partner program is a must along with a robust technology.

I have found some good ones that are around 3$ per GB and better as you go bigger. I wanted to see if anyone here uses online backups for personal PCs and why you chose that service.
Here is the criteria,

1. Branding options
2. Ease in installation and daily usage
3. Easy retrieval (via browser ideally)
4. Control Panel to see which PCs are doing what
5. Good data center and DR plan for the backup facility

Any help will be much appreciated.
Thanks,
Comment

nice insights...

on the contrary, people lose their data after a routine power surge or just by mistakenly formatting and reinstalling systems. The external hd is an option but some users just can't commit to it for ever, more importantly their data remains at only one location, so its a single point of failure after all.

wat if there is a reliable company (in business for a long time and good affiliates/testimonials) ?
