I'm in the middle of pricing several but, as a non-tech kind of guy, not sure what's a good deal and what's not.

So, any suggestions? I have a four-person company that deals with very large files files, including photography and long-form video.

Thanks for that, Peregrine. At the same time, I currently have 2.5 TB. This service only seems to go to 1 TB. Or am I reading their website correctly?

I use Crashplan. Unlimited backup, reasonably priced, very reliable.

The redhead ain't bad, either.

Oh. You have to scroll down a ways to find the available plans.

I don't think he's looking for a backup solution, Tek.

2.5?!? Wow! Yea, that one has a 1TB limit.
You have a few other options then.

There's BOX and DROPBOX.

Both are $15/user per month.

Differences:
DropBox requires you to start with 5 users. So that's $75/month ($750 if paid annually).
Box will let you have 4 = $60, no discount for annual payment: $720.
Both are UNLIMITED space.
Box has a 5GB limit on uploaded files (although they encourage you to contact them if you regularly work with larger files).
DropBox has no limit.

There's also Amazon Glacier, but I like the mentioned Crashplan better.

Again, OP never mentioned a "Backup Solution". I believe he wants Online File Storage. Something he can also use to share files with clients\customers and collaborate with co-workers.

I think you're right. I misread it because it was split between title and body.

Confusing sometimes.
