Recommend cloud based hosted for large 500GB files

Hello.  I would like to backup my virtual server images (usually 20GB to 500GB) to an off-site location.

Both Amazon and Rackspace seem to have file size limits and require you to break up the image into many small files (something I don't want to deal with).

Do you know of;

A)  A cloud based service that has a way to transmit large files successfully
B)  A cloud based service that will allow me to store very large files?

I have very good internet bandwidth and looking for a provider with the same.  If the provider has a data center in Los Angeles, CA. I can also direct connect to them if need be.

Thank you in advance.

Try Carbonite (www.carbonite.com)

The Home/Home Office Packages start at $59.00/year with unlimited storage and no file size restrictions. Considering the fact that you are backing up your VMs., you might also appreciate their Courier Delivery service. That can be a fast option to get all of that data back in case it is required in an emergency.

Good Luck!

Looks great.

Looks like it only runs on MAC/PC.  I'll edit my original question to include that we are running Linux CentOS.

http://www.onlinestoragesolution.com/ could be another solution. They offer direct FTP access as well and according to their FAQ they do not place any limitations on file size or storage space. $29/year seems cheap with a money back guarantee.

If you opt for this solution, please do let me know about your experience.

Looks like a great solution but the company doesn't seem to have a way to contact them, see:

http://www.onlinestoragesolution.com/contact.html

I get nervous of companies that do not have a working contact page.  I'll be placing sensitive data there and I want to know a reputable company is behind our data.

The FTP/RSYNC options looked awesome.  Sounds like I might just need to put a server somewhere and do this myself.

Just as i was about to give up, i found this:

Unlimited FTP Space , no restrictions for $9.95/yr. Sounds too good to be true. Check it out.
