    See? The thing is, somebody, somewhere must actually be paying that much money for storage - at that rate the chunk of spare server rack capacity sitting behind me is probably worth several tens of thousands of pounds a month.

    90% of the charges they company provide are the managed backup not the storage. - I havn't worked with redstor but I have worked with the likes of Databarracks.

    They main costs they have is the availability of having somebody ready 24/7/365 to get your data on a USB and back to you within x number of hours. They also tend to manage the support so they tell you if you have a backup issue and remove that headache.
