After wiping out my home dir on a nice October work day morning I’ve decided I need some backups.
Desktop: ~50MB (dotfiles and checked out code) Server: ~8.2GB (security cam recordings, git repos, confluence notes, etc.) Home assistant: ~60MB (snapshoots)
The total is let’s say 10GB.
Goal: under $2/mo
|Tarsnap||$0.25 * 10GB = $2.5/mo||There is an initial price included of $2.5 to get this online. Tools are included and it’s secure!|
|S3||$0.23 total||Cheap!! But I have to build tools or use something I don’t understand.|
|Borgbase||$2.75/mo for 100GB||Over the budget but tools included and scales well unlike Tarsnap|
I’ve went with Borgbase in the end. Using borgmatic this was very easy to setup.
