StrongSpace.com – offsite backup solution

      1 Comment on StrongSpace.com – offsite backup solution

I admit that I haven’t been as good about backups or updating offsite storage as well as I should have. Over on the ProFox list, someone was recommending the Strong Space (http://www.strongspace.com) service.

So I signed up. Very cool service. $8 per month for 6G of space. You can upload a zip file and it has an option to unzip it when it arrives at the server. Bonus!

The file transfers are done via SFTP and I was shopping around for which Linux client I would use for the SFTP file transfers and, right under my nose, is Konqueror. In the location bar just type in “sftp://username@yoursubdomain.strongspace.com” type in the password when prompted and copy and paste to your hearts content. Two thumbs up!

Now I need to figure out a more automated what of accomplishing my backups. I don’t want to back up too little, or too much, or too frequently, or too infrequently. This will take some tweaking.

    Strongspace has recently doubled their prices and no longer present a good deal. I’ve created a space on Lunarpages which gives 250G for $7 per month. A much better deal although they don’t offer SFTP.
