I've been a satisfied user of CrashPlan for cloud backups of my family's computers for many years, but now that Code42 is discontinuing CrashPlan Home in favor of their business-oriented offerings, I now find myself in need of a new home backup solution.
Unfortunately, neither of their suggested replacements appear to fit my use case, as Carbonite only supports Windows & Mac (not Linux) and CrashPlan Business uses a per-device subscription model that would drastically increase the price. Our current cost for CrashPlan Home is ~$12.50/month, so I'm looking for alternatives in a similar price range.
Any solution would have to support:
- Backups for two Windows machines (one laptop, one desktop) and one Linux desktop/server.
- CLI is fine for Linux, but a GUI is preferred on Windows.
- Cloud storage for >250GB of data.
- Unlimited storage would be best, and encryption is preferred but not mandatory. A "cloudless" solution would not be sufficient as I'm aiming for an off-site backup in case of house fire, etc.
Ideal solutions would also provide:
- Support for local backup to external drive or NAS.
- Retention of file history.
- Unlimited history is not necessary, but something like a 30-day rolling window would be nice.
- Configuration for both idle and scheduled backups.
- I currently run nightly backups for the Linux server, but continuous/idle backups on the Windows machines.
- Controls for limits on bandwidth usage.
- Reputation for reliability.
