We are glad to announce that we have completed the research grant (on time and on budget) that the SIA Foundation has sponsored and have been approved for the grant to develop the PBS Cloud backup module and an S3 plugin. The purpose of this grant is to allow proxmox VE servers (virtual machine servers) to backup their data off-site to any compatible S3 storage network so that should a worse-case event occur the business can survive. Approx 93% of companies without disaster recovery who suffer a major data disaster due to flood or fire are out of business within one year? Backup your data locally for speed, but also keep a copy in the cloud so you can restore from the cloud should disaster strike.
The Sia Network is a distributed redundant storage network that uses the sia coin as payment. You will find that the Sia network provides redundancy and low-cost backup solution and we recommend you try it before other S3 solutions.
