Backup Tip of the Day

If you have more than 2GB of data to backup and don't want to continue paying a monthly fee, we at TodD labs discovered something that might be of interest to you. Brought to you by Dreamhost, a leading web hosting company, they offer "Files Forever." This service is great if you already have a hosting account because you pay a one-time fee of $0.01 per 4MB. So, if you're having to store tons of large files in perpetuity, you simply upload them, tell Dreamhost where they are, and pay your one-time fee. You never pay monthly for it, just once and done!

Let me throw in my endorsement for Amazon S3. It's only $0.15 / GB / month. Granted, you have to use a special client designed to work with S3, but there are plenty out there now.

It's also great for content distribution, so you could upload a huge video to it and pay a dime for hundreds of people to download it.
