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.

Will You Be GDPR Compliant by 5/28/2018?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

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.

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