Is this a good cloud storage service?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Am I crazy to want one cloud service that's great for backup and video sharing/streaming?

When I look at the popular services they seem to be lacking in some way:

CrashPlan - No streaming/sharing features. Initial upload can take weeks or months. Seeding costs $124 and is limited to 1TB.
SmugMug - Videos limited to 20 min clips. Quality is downgraded and limited in bitrate, so it can't be a backup.
Bitcasa - Lots of stability/bug complaints, limited streaming/sharing features, hard to trust their business model.

How much does it cost to get all of this in one nicely integrated service that can support 100GB+ of storage? Or better yet a terabyte+ of storage?

Check out Vimeo Plus. It is $59 a year; you can upload 5GB of videos a week. The service allows streaming of your videos at 720p or 1080p. And the original you uploaded is available for downloading.

Thanks for the suggestion on Vimeo.

Problems I see are (pls correct me if I'm not getting it):

- It would take forever to use as a backup because of the 5/GB / week limit. For example to backup 300GB of videos it would take over a year.

- The mobile app does not seem to allow multiple uploads. It's actually fairly common to build up dozens of 1080p videos on a phone and uploading manually and waiting in between would be a chore,

- No support for steraming/online 60fps playback. I know this is a niche, but there are so many new cameras that support this I don't see why it's not useful.

- Price could be cheaper for at least a 100GB starter plan

Anyone know any better options to get good backup + good streaming?
