Do you need cloud storage or online backup? They're two different usage patterns. As a software developer, I need online backup. I have ever changing small files (programs, tests, client software) that I want to have uploaded with multiple versions kept, all automatically. I use multiple levels of backup because they're really cheap so why not use two. I use both CrashPlan and JungleDisk. Both Amazon based, I believe. I setup CrashPlan to backup every 15 minutes, JungleDisk once a day at 3am.
Quality of backup is largely all about the client software that sits on your computer. I looked at many, many online backup services. Many of the clients had flawed UI or features. I now like CrashPlan's client the best. JungleDisk, formerly my favorite, seems to be orphaned. CloudBerry was ok.
I absolutely give CrashPlan a big thumbs up.
