Is anyone using a cloud based backup solution with say 22 TB
If so what are the products you are using
What is the compression like and the dedupe like
What archiving methods do they have
We are using a system but it does not compress very well or dedupe and as the sorage is growing and growing it is getting very expensive

I've used 5TB on hosted backup.

For 22TB cloud is always going to be expensive... Compression depends much more on the data than the provider.

For 22TB I'd build a server to go into colo rather than use a 'cloud' provider.

For the price, build a cheaply 3-4 u box, colo is about 100/u/mo
Much less than 22tb of cloud. But then you have to back it up, unless it is a backup.
Look at crash plan to do the backups to other sites.

Google Storage: Standard vs. Nearline vs. Coldline

Google Cloud Storage has a number of classes to choose from. Although there are a lot in common, they vary in price and usage terms. This post explains Google Cloud Storage classes and helps to understand which  one to choose.

colocation, where you pay a hosting provider to host your own server rather than use a managed server.

If you buy a rackmount server that has the storage you need, you can pay a company like level 3, millinium, att, etc... To put that server in their datacenter for $100 per U (hight of the rackmount server is measured in U) per month. So a 4u server is about $400 per month to colocate (your stuff at someone else's location) this should include power, cooling, Internet connection. Some companies will only rent full or half racks, some rent space.

The point is that online storage for 22tb is expensive.
