I am looking for backup software, for which I am very happy to pay for, but only if it meets the following constraints:
- Must run on Windows
- Must be near-real-time. Ideally real-time.
- Must able to backup directly to the cloud, not through a service. I have a lot of Azure Credits and I would like to use them, but given the low S3 cost that's okay too
I am currently running CloudBerry, but that's rather flaky software when it comes to larger sets of data being shuffled around. I just don't trust it.
I looked at Acronis (for 'normal' users), which would've been great as you can map an Azure FileStore on Windows, if it wasn't for the case that my provider blocks that port, and I don't want to set up a permanent VPN on all of my machines for that.
Worst comes to worst I buy a Synology, but 4TB in, and let my machines backup there, and let the Synology backup to Azure/S3...
In the past I have used CrashPlan, but since they killed their home plan I have been wandering around looking for alternatives. To this day my search remains fruitless.
