Several of the popular consumer online backup companies are now offering plans tailored specifically to business customers. In addition, there are several companies that cater solely to businesses. We’ve checked them all out and recommend the following as the best options for small business and corporate data backup:
Best consumer companies offering business backup:
How is Backblaze for Business different from Backblaze for Individuals? Both versions of Backblaze automatically backup all data online and provide unlimited storage for just $50/computer/year. In addition, for companies with at least 5 computers to backup, Backblaze for Business adds central billing and reporting from a master account – all while each employee continues to have their own account to backup to and restore from. Simply put, for just $50/year per user you get unlimited backup for your entire company!
SugarSync for business: All the great features of SugarSync plus administrative dashboard and live support, make it perfect for your business, organization or group. You can download the SugarSync for business data sheet here. Start with 100 GB of Storage & 3 Users for just $299.99/year or $29.99/month. While a bit more $$ than BackBlaze, it does offer businesses the ability to sync data.
Dropbox for Teams; Everything you expect from Dropbox, now for everyone on your team. $795/year for first 5 users & $125/year for each additional user. Teams start with 1,000 GB (1 TB) of storage for five users, with 200 GB added for each additional user. While more expensive than SugarSync, you get a LOT more data.
