Dear Clients Partners and Friends,
A lot of our customers are asking us: what is a good price point for Cloud Backup Services?
Well, there are plenty of different providers and technologies out there for cloud backups; some fall into disfavor and new ones are coming out daily. What is the best backup service price point to orient against?
The answer is fortunately or unfortunately not that simple. – It depends on what corporate resources you are trying to back up. On premises or already in the cloud? Workstations or servers? Applications or data? Are you trying to do a traditional-type backup (i.e. stockpile food for a rainy day) or disaster recovery scenario (a bugout bag with ready-to-eat meals)?
In our experience, one company provides the best combination of price point, feature sets, availability, and security – Microsoft 365/Azure backup.
if you have an Office 365 subscription, you can configure all user’s workstation data (Documents, Desktop, etc.) to automatically backup to OneDrive – up to 1TB! You can configure source folders, size limits, etc. (Learn more about OneDrive here)
i.e. if you have 10 servers to backup, and the total data size is 1 TB – estimated monthly price is $20/month; this can be expected to grow as users sprawl data, but overall it should not exceed $100/month for most small and mid-size businesses. (Learn more about Azure backups here)
If your server(s) happen to accidentally fail – they will come up in Azure cloud, within minutes and be accessible to users (in this event the price point will increase, as you will have to pay Microsoft for computing resources); the data in the cloud is only kept for up to 72 hrs, in 5-minute increments.

In our experience, Microsoft cloud backup is a sensible choice for existing Microsoft 365/Azure customers (and take a look at the prices for yourself) – Microsoft literally is giving it away for free!
