ThePlanet DiskSync Review


Can anyone with TP/SM that uses DiskSync backup comment on?

1. ease of use
2. automation
3. file integrity (compresses @ 50%)
4. restore
5. reliability
6. server loads

Currently backup to GNAX which I feel good about.

At $2.00/gb plus transfer.... I dont think it is worth it. There's another active thread on ServerMatrix's forums:

Preesh? Was that a sneeze?

We've seen the product in action and it is nice, just not for the price.

Another thing that would be necessary to compete with gnax would be a written statement that no matter what happens to the server account, backup data from the backup system will not be deleted for 30 days, or something to that affect. Otherwise there is a concern that if a misunderstanding occurs (billing, abuse, etc.), both one's server and their backup data could be wiped, which kind of defeats the purpose of a backup.

It's included for free in the hosting offers this week. Is it worth $0/gb?
