Low Cost Bulk Storage Sekweta provides economical bulk file storage (an "electronic lockbox") for those wanting reliable off-site file storage for basic or self-managed backups. Each lockbox provides the same ultra-reliable storage as our Fully Managed Off-Site Backup Services.
FTP and rsync Supported FTP and rsync are supported methods of transferring files to your Off-Site LockBox at Sekweta. We recommend rsync, because it sends only the changes you have made to files since the last backup. If you have a very large file (for example, 500 MB) but only a small portion has been modified, FTP will re-send the entire 500 MB, whereas rsync will only transfer the changes. This dramatically reduces the time needed to complete the backup, improves reliablity, and conserves network resources. FTP is a good choice when you are primarily backing up small files and are unfamiliar with rsync.
Best of Both Worlds If you need an economical off-site lockbox but would like someone else to handle the setup on your PC, we can provide the backup software, perform the installation and configure the backup schedule for you.
