Robert Nyman talks about Amazon’s S3 service, which provides pretty much anyone with a great online storage system and talks about their upcoming pricing changes, which will make it even more affordable for some people.
Basically, what this means is that I pay about 20 – 24$ a year for a safe and reliable backup of about 10 GB of data. Not too shabby, eh? If you’re looking for safe and very cheap backup, I would really recommend Amazon S3. No need to worry about malfunctioning external disk drives, burning backup CDs/DVDs all the time or other issues. Transfer the files to Amazon and you’re safe!
There are also recommendations for various tools you can use to access the S3 service. I, for one, am excited to give the service a try to back up all my personal photos, coding projects and design work. Check out Ryan’s post for more details.
