I'm wanting to set up a backup server for my existing VPS'. I'm not sure what sort of specs will be necessary though. I'll just be using cPanel's built in backup feature, so will just FTP in and download the backup via SSH when necessary. All of these are cheap:
I don't know. Most providers won't allow you to use a shared or VPS account as a backup service (there will be a stipulation in their TOS saying that a certain percentage of files must be linked from a site hosted on the account).
Besides, who would trust their backups to a provider who cannot be bothered to design a remotely decent looking site? It just seems to scream low quality IMO.
Their TOS says it's okay to use it for backup purposes. I'm pretty sure the provider is okay, and I've read some reviews that say it's good. And it's only $3! Of course, provided that is suitable for a backup server.
If their packages suit you; our backup server handles quite a bit more as 800GB bandwidth i.e. and in those cases its often cheaper to get just a cheap dedicated server; also guarantee's your speeds better.
If your need of space is for backup only, above providers will fit your need economically, also you don't have to worry about the infrastructure, managing the server/vps etc. They all provide FTP/SSH access.
What about using cloud storage such as Amazon S3 or ThePlanet's cloud storage?
