In the end, something like this was bound to happen. Microsoft was the first to pull back from unlimited cloud storage on OneDrive, although it is still (IMO) one of the best options to have with Office365, but for Cloud Backup it’s a different story: Amazon was recently offering Unlimited storage but pulled back as well. Costs for this must be very significant and home users ultimately will more likely abuse the system than enterprise ones.

CrashPlan for Small Business

In the end I think paying up twice as much for CrashPlan for Small Business can be one of the best options. The app for Synology is named differently but it reportedly works similarly.

 

Backblaze B2

The significant advantage of Backblaze B2 is that is it natively supported by Synology’s Could Sync services, which I already use for OneDrive and fell pretty great about. But for large datasets (2Tb+) and from the cost calculations I’ve made, it’s hard to beat CrashPlan for Small Business.
