How much data do you have ? Would Dropbox, Google Drive, or iCloud not works for you ? If you want enterprise storage solution, you can read this and find out more by yourself or post more here

With a 1Gbps connection, with the right tool or skill, one can blitz beyond 700+Mbps upload to AWS S3. That would be beyond your consumer grade cloud storage, but you must be able to stomach the price

No free lunch, so have the right expectation.

Didnít benchmark that. Maybe you wanna look online for such benchmark. Seriously fast is subjective and also depends on what internet connection you have and where you are located. What kind of speed are you expecting and what kind of data size you want to upload

have since uploaded and stored my backup files and Pictures in .7z files encrypted with password into Amazon S3 Standard > Glacier.

Uploading speed is excellent.

I'm like paying only less than $3.50 or less per mth for approx. 180gb data.

physical HDDs can uplorry so i think this is the best way to store my backups.

Ty David for recommending AWS S3

Welcome. Even most enterprises will find it very hard to beat a reliability of 99.999999999%, more over highly secured with most industrial security standards.

BTW unless ur data is really that personal and or trade secret to the interest of AWS, you donít need to encrypt all of it. AWS latest KMS uses HMS for storing the keys, so that is actually very secure. Not unless your confidentially are national level or really would put you into possible legal issues, which then you will then want to really encrypt them yourself, holding your own keys.

Sure. As long as you feels comfortable. Strangely at 180GB that should cost you <USD1/mth. Not unless you are calculating the initial upload into S3 and I/O cost. It should be that amount unless you retrieve it

can't rem but that time my Fibre line is only 300Mbps and Aztech homeplugs further crippled my up/dl speed to 100+Mbps (according to speedtest.net) and I managed to upload my entire 4TB ext hdd backup within a few days. The backup software uses multiple threaded uploads so it actually tried to max out the line by uploading multiple files simultaneously.

AWS S3 in Asia should be much faster but it is 4 times more expensive then BackBlaze B2.

Thanks for the info.

I don't like their restore feature, having to queue and wait for the required folder to be zipped before able to download is a turn-off for me.

You can order the entire hdd to be shipped/couriered to you with your backup data in it and then return the drive back for a refund. This service is good if you have TBs of data stored and you don't have the time to slowly download to restore.
