Hi Experts,

I want to be able to backup my file server data to the cloud. I have signed up for google cloud storage but does anyone know how I can create an automated process to backup my data to the cloud?

Thanks
Rio

Was thinking of Google Cloud Connect [1]  initially but it is for microsoft document plugin. gsutil may be useful if you into scripting [2]. did not see the  Google Cloud Storage Manager  able to do any automated hence was thinking script may be more flexible (though i am not user of it). but all in all, this looks like more for developer backing up codes ...[3]

That was my impression. Anyone know of a cloud solution that can automate the backup of a Windows 2008 R2 share?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Of the other suggestions I made, Mozy is part of EMC, are they big enough for you ?

How many GB/TB do you need to backup ?
What backup retention do you need ?
Have you thought of running a hosted backup server in a colo ?

I need to replicate 3TB of data to the cloud initially. Once this is there it will just be incremental changes
