I am looking for somewhere to store off site backups for multiple companies/sites

I don't want to pay over the odds but at the same time need a company where we can easily access our backups if we need them - any recommendations?

Also, what would you say was a fair cost per GB or TB?

Regards

James

they don't seem to have a UK option, I'm looking for something with a software package we would place on our server that would backup our server each evening and maybe keep a weeks worth of copies for us to retrieve from rather than a cloud solution

Contacted them and got some quotes - These are great for big businesses and I will be moving some of my larger companies across. Does anyone have any advice for smaller/cheaper services?

If you're using Windows servers, and/or Windows client PCs/laptops, you could use Windows Skydrive. It costs less than 50 euro per year, per user for 100GB. Google also have an alternative. I think it's called Google Drive. It's free for the first few GB too for small users.
