    We must be in a lucky situation here. We pay about £2k per annum for off-site backup, with no limits on our data storage or retrieval. But it is with a local college who are a partner in our trust.

    Is that for 4TB's? From a rough guess I have a client who pays roughly £500 per month (6kpa) for a little less then that! So reducing that to sub $50 a month ($600pa) and you paying the restore fee after 2 years which you may never need.

    We have about 20 or 30TB stored up there. (We store unlimited copies of documents as they change, and then any file that is deleted is after 60 days), and it includes a 100Mb fibre between us and them. (Its our backup solution, so not just DR).

    Then thats fair enough - I wouldn't want to put that on a normal cloud hosted solution! that's thousands a month!
