Looking some experiences as to who would be your Backup provider.

We are changing - want a cloud solution.

Around 50 VM's - one in particular is quite large space size.

Also looking at an option to review our Workstation/Laptop - backups

Take a look at Amazon's S3 https://aws.amazon.com/s3/pricing/

Also I would HIGH recommend a secondary onsite local cached copy of your back.

Restoring 100TB in the event of catastrophic failure would not be pretty, in terms of time.

What's your total disk space for backup?

Are you looking for bare metal recovery or data only from servers and workstations?

Can you advise on questions back to you from Nappy_d ?

I use Amazon S3, and Amazon Glacier with both WIndows and Linux backups.  

Alternatively, there is Box, and Azure.

Darrin,

Are these VM images you want to backup, e.g.  Operating System, Apps, Configuration and Data, OR just  Data from the Apps  ?

Also factor cost, many services are "free" to put the data in, but charge a ton to recover.  With a 100TB that would take awhile, what internet speed do you have?  Run some rough download times and check your rpo/rto and make sure you are ok with that.

Use Veeam Backup for your VMs and Free Agent also from Veeam to backup physical Workstations and Laptops to Veeam Repo then Replicate it to Amazon!

Not cheap though!
