Due to the slow speed issues, we are shifting some of our important data to some other cloud service from the current provider. Can somebody tell me some suggestions when choosing a good cloud backup solution. What are the things we must consider to choose a better system in an economic way. Experienced people, please help us with your valuable suggestions. Thank you in advance.

You can consider these
1. Authentication of users and backup clients to the backup server.
2. Role based access control lists for all backup and recovery operations.
3. Data encryption options for both transmission and storage.
4. Flexibility in choosing encryption and authentication algorithms, for example, aespipe or gpg.
5. Backup of remote clients to a centralized location behind firewalls.
6. Backup and recovery of clients running Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux).
7. Using best practices to write secure software

From a security point of view, an external hard drive is hard to beat. It’s in your possession, in safe place of your choosing and only yourself and those you allow, have access to it. A technology thief with a specific interest in hard drives aside, it’s safe in your hands.

Based on the other posts from this user, don't ever user their data recovery services. I'll be banning most of these users and delete their posts on Monday.
