Also I like rsync.net for remote storage/backup. $0.80 per GB per month and they are total hacker ninjas. It's more or less enterprise quality. They offer student discounts, too I think.Windows access with:
- Our simple, powerful Backup Agent
- Map as a drive letter for simple drag and drop access
- WinSCP, CuteFTP, or any other ftp/sftp/scp application
- The cwRsync version of the powerful rsync backup utility (rsync.exe)
Macintosh access with:
- The powerful rsync tool built into OS X
- Connect in the Finder for simple drag and drop access
- Fugu, Interarchy, Fetch, Transmit, or any other ftp/sftp/scp tool
UNIX access with:
- rsync, scp, sftp, ftp, rdiff-backup, Unison, duplicity
- standard unix commands over SSH
- Use as a local mount point with sshfs
Drag and drop means WebDAV. For WebDAV on XP, use the old version of Novell NetDrive available here. Avoid WebDrive. For Vista/Win7, use the new NetDrive. Multiple WebDAV clients are available for iOS and Android. Probably BB and Symbian, etc too.Facilities
How do you secure your facilities ?
Our physical facilities are manned by live technicians 24 hours per day. Biometric access controls are employed at our locations, as well as video recording and strict entry/access logs.
How is the filesystem fault tolerant ?
All data is housed on hardware RAID arrays providing _at least_ RAID-6 protection. DO NOT trust your data to anyone running software raid, or anyone using RAID-5 (even if they utilize hot spares, etc.) All power is conditioned and backed by battery banks which are backed by diesel generators. Physical machines are connected to at least two distinct power circuits.
rsync.net performs quarterly audits of power load and equipment failover, and we are quite strict as to what constitutes "passing".
How well connected are your datacenters ?
Our primary US location is connected to a quintuple-homed network. All global locations are at least triple-homed.
rsync.net performs quarterly audits of network throughput and network latency.
What other security measures do you employ ?
We employ network Intrusion Detection Systems as well as IDS on each individual host.
Each users' individual filesystem is in a chroot that isolates it from the rest of the system.
Finally, user filesystems all live on data partitions that are mounted noexec / nosuid / nodev which provides an additional level of safety against sophisticated attacks.
That's really nothing all that special. Dropbox has similar security/uptime.
