Backupsy — a month later!

Backupsy CP Backupsy CP

I’ve been with Backupsy for about one month now, I started my service with them at 09/14/2014 and up until now everything has been functioning as expected; no issues. The recent emergency maintenance which subsequently meant moving the node to another rack meant nothing, it all seamlessly went past me without any hiccups.

The only thing which really matters to me is the network connectivity (which has been fine). I am using Syncthing [2] to syncronise backups across several machines.

Here are a few benchmarks to compare to my previous benchmark [1] over one month ago. If you are looking for a solid provider for backing up your data, you might want to give this company a try — I’m not disappointed

  1. Ah, you got one of their Incero host nodes. I have one too.
    A-class network. I mostly use it as a NAS for my other Incero based VPS.

    • Yes, really solid all-around. No complaints about a thing so far. Great provider :]
