Summary

Overall, Cloudberry may seem like the most inexpensive option on our list due to the one-time price, which is offered. However, the Cloudberry cloud backup solution requires an additional purchase of a third party cloud storage service of the user’s choice. In terms of value, Data Deposit Box is the frontrunner due to their pay per use policy, as well as their product’s impressive features.

Jungle Disk and Data Deposit Box present easy-to-use interfaces and product management centres. The Jungle Disk cloud backup solution for Linux however, fails to provide details regarding data backup activity, where the Data Deposit Box solution allows the user to view all necessary information.

We believe that a combination of phone and online support is the best way to provide customers with the resources they need to navigate a new product. Jungle Disk, Cloudberry and Data Deposit Box all offer various methods of contact including phone, email, and informational web pages. Additionally, Data Deposit Box offers daily email reports, which is a unique feature that keeps users up to date on product information.

SpiderOak One and Data Deposit Box offer the most impressive technological features in their cloud backup solutions for Linux. These products offer extensive data protection, file retention and fast backup technology.
