Hi, i'm searching the best backup software for the cloud.
many of my customers are needing backing up all data during 1 - 2 months.
average, the total data for each customer is 500 to 800GB (full backup) and incrementals are about 15GB daily.

so, according to my reading, I think the software must meet the following requirements or features:

synthetic full backup (incremental forever)
seed      
deduplication      
compresion      
system image      
cloud ready      
easy recovery (universal)      
advanced monitoring      
archiving      
wan optimization      
re-initialization of failed backups.
replication
security      

any tool support some or all of this features?

Could you dive deeper into what kind of data? Are you backing up VMs, databases etc? If youre pushing up and towards 1TB a month, I would not suggest doing a direct "cloud" backup, rather I would have an onsite backup target (like a NAS for example) And then push only differentials offsite or to a "cloud" service. That can be a lot of data per day and especially on the upstream, can bog down internet traffic and may even cause daily backups to fail.

Hi, with Synthetic Backup (incremental forever) , i only need move the full initial backup, the others backups are incrementals, forever!.

ok. that's other feature that i need (backup to local target and off site backup to cloud target).

do you know any tool with some or all this features?
