    Offsite backups

    I'm looking at offsite backup options for 1 of my servers, as I need to start using rsync. My dedicated server is in Europe and I need around 400 GB of space for the backups.

    What would guys suggest I do, get a dedicated server for this or look for hosts that offer storage hosting. If you have any recommandations please feel free to give me some links.

    A low-end server with 400-500 GB space would be a good solution.
    You can also look into back-up space, but I think the pricing will be around the same depending on who you go for. - Online in no time

    The cheapest Kimsufi would be ideal for situations like this, unfortunately they stopped selling it. Could even get 2 Kimsufis for redundancy, they are cheap enough.

    BuyVM has some low priced storage VMs, they are in Vegas so very far offsite from Europe

    Thank you all for your replies. The thing is that I don't need all the resources that a dedicated server or even a VPS offers. All I need is the space and BW. Are there any shared hosting providers that would offer high space with low processing specs and ssh connection ? If anyone knows any good example please share a link.

    Thank you.

    Shared Hosting providers will usually not allow their space being used for backup purposes. Your best bet would be to grab something like a storage VPS from BuyVM or Backupsy.
