for small companies looking to back up pc and mac data would Amazon EC2 be most suitable?


I have a web design company with clients asking me to back up their business data as well as web sites - the latter I already do on a back up server with my host - and some may want to be able to access programs and data remotely in future - clients are small firms with up to 5 pcs so no big networks - some are mac based some windows - would amazon ec2 give me the flexibility and security I need as it appears to be good on cost and easy to set up or would you recommend another solution

thanks Nick

Amazon's service would be good to backup databases or as a SANS replacement. If you want to backup clients PC's you should take a look at Iron Mountain's Connected Backup or Crash Plan. It really depends on your budget and what the client is looking for.

Hope that helps,
