    Should I go for this or wait for Jungle Disk – I am a bit concerned that Keep Vault will disappear since there are so many companies offering online backup (though not for WHS!).

    Does anyone else find the Amazon storage costs confusing – using their online calculator you have to specify data stored and also how much you upload and download each month! When I tried to guestimate it looked like it was going to cost about £30 a month!

  2. I admit that Amazon may have more clout than KeepVault but there prices portray that too. As you say $30 compared to KeepVault’s $8.25 per month. ($99 yearly divide by 12) is a lot of difference. I have personally been using KeepVault for the last few weeks and find it excellent.
    Proxure the company that make KeepVault have a large product range (http://www.proxure.com/products.htm) and are not just a one product start-up. Also okayPublish (http://okaypublish.com/) provide the backend backup for them, and they themselves are a respectful company.
    I also find Amazon’s S3 pricing confusing. Working out your storage used, amount of data transfered and requests for PUT, GET and DELETE is confusing.

    I’m having severe performance issues uploading to Keepvault right now. I’ve also seen others having similar issues (http://www.overclockingwiki.org/forums/showthread.php?p=17113#post17113)
    Anybody else?

  4. Hi jebo_4jc,
    Thanks for that link. Is anyone else experiencing slow upload speeds using KeepVault?
