I tested Cloudberry backup to back up server 2008 and it seemed slow.  It backs up 7GB of data  to Amazon S3 in 6 hours.  My broadband connection averages about 2-3  Mbps up.   I not sure what I should expect.
 

1

Is 7GB in 6 hours slow or fast?  

2

Does someone know of a chart that gives me some benchmarks based on pipe size and data amount?

Or, is it simple math?

Carbonite skips more than just videos.  If you are on a mac, (this is from memory, I tried them and dumped them), then they at least used to skip the "operating system files".   I.e, they only backed up what they said was your data.   So they technically don't back up your computer.     There was a way you could force it to back up more types of files, but I found the thought of having to manually override what I wanted backed up in order to get a full system backup so distasteful, that I decided against them for my home PCs.

Check out Veeam Backup & Replication Cloud Edition, just released yesterday. Compression is done before transfer.
