    Microsoft announces Backup of Windows 10 machines using Azure Backup

    Windows 10 client machines can now be backed up seamlessly to cloud by Azure Backup service. Customers with machines running Windows 10 (64-bit) operating systems can protect their important file-folder data to Azure in a secure manner and restore data on any machine.

    I am not sure if this 'backup in the cloud' is as easy to use as File History. Furthermore, I am not sure how much the smallest 'backup vault' of 50GB would cost per month. If it is not too expensive, it would be nice to have an additional backup of the most important files.

    Edit: Moreover, I wonder who offers competitive backup services in the cloud? Amazon? Who else?

    if you have Amazon Prime you can upload an unlimited amount of photos and videos. If you pay $60 to Amazon you get unlimited storage of practically any other files. The Azure offering is $5/month plus storage costs. Either way you are paying $60 but Amazon seems to be the better deal.

    Carbonite is between $50/yr/PC to $120/yr/PC unlimited storage.

    No matter who you use, your looking at $60/yr.

    To me the issue with cloud based backup is the speed. Most ISPs have a 2Mb to 5Mb upload speed which makes it painfully slow. I have over 500Gb of photos and it took days to backup my photos on Amazon. It was easier to purchase a NAS or SAN.

    I think Crashplan is the best. It has good, useful backup features, 448-bit file encryption, storage for one computer costs about $4-$5 per month.
