    Great post Krishnan – I too use the combination of S3 and Jungledisk to back up our main server in the office. It is by far the cheapest option to store gigabytes of data offsite.

    We have Jungledisk installed on all our workstations/laptops as well so that we can pull any of our data off the cloud no matter where we are.

    I am still to decide whether to go for their ‘pro’ edition which allows incremental backups of large file (Our Exchange dump is around 10Gb!).

    It will be interesting to see where Rackspace takes this service in the future – I hope they don’t tie into another pricier storage provider!

    5GB file size limitation should be in the “CONS” section. This applies to businesses using exchange server. Try MozyPro or iBackup.

  3. TntDrive

    You can also use TntDrive to mount Amazon S3 Bucket as a network drive. Network drive created by TntDrive can be accessed by other computers over the local network. You can configure native Windows Backup to work directly with Amazon S3 Bucket by using TntDrive. 5 Gb file size limit can be solved by using chunking.
