Hello

Now that I have a subscription with akeeba backup, I want to save outside the host of the site
I looked at those compatible now with your extension, but my criteria would be ideally cheap and in Europe.
I have preselected:
* pcloud (encrypted on server +175€) otherwise 500go-48€/year - https://www.pcloud.com/fr/cloud-storage-pricing-plans.html
* https://fr.cloudamo.com/login ~36€/year/100go - https://cloudamo.com/store/nextcloud
* mega 50€/year -400go https://mega.nz/pro

Is this possible?

Regards

pCloud is not compatible with Akeeba Backup. Their OAuth2 integration for third party software has been broken since 2020 and they didn't bother fixing it so we removed support.

Cloudamo, I have never heard of them. I am confused looking at their page. They seem to offer hosting, not storage.

Mega should be compatible with Akeeba Backup since they claim to have an Amazon S3-compatible API. We have not tried it, nor do we have any reports from clients using it. It's also not in Europe, it's in New Zealand. You know the story of Mega and how its owner is a fugitive from Germany, right?

I am really not sure how you ended up with that shortlist which is incompatible with Akeeba Backup, isn't a storage provider or doesn't host in Europe. Whatever was the thought process it seems to have been misguided.

Do note that you can use a plethora of cloud providers who offer storage in Europe. Amazon S3 has several EU regions (Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Paris). Backblaze B2 has an EU region, located in Amsterdam. Microsoft Azure, the same. Generally speaking, all enterprise-grade storage providers have EU-only regions and better pricing than consumer-grade file hosting. You have only been looking at the consumer-grade options which are... not great for backups.

Hello

Thank you for this detailed answer.
In fact I have made this short list over the years to make backups of my computer data.
Most of the providers you mention are unknown to me or are part of GAFA :-( or out of my budget :-(

  1. pcloud : Too bad, sad
  2. Mega: I "know" (actually what I've read, but I think it's ancient history). I use 50GB for free, but the space is full of my data. Works well overall, but a little slow. I keep it as a fallback if compatible.
  3. Cloudamo https://cloudamo.com/store/nextcloud annoyed, because I really like the nextcloud solution. The nextcloud based hosting might not be suitable?
    Otherwise, the last solution that I would like
  4. infomaniak https://www.infomaniak.com/fr/swiss-backup
    Would it work with swift (which would also allow me to use it with my data backup) https://www.infomaniak.com/fr/swiss-backup/stockage-libre ?

1. Yeah, well... I was sad to have to remove that feature but what can you do?

2. OK

3. NextCloud SHOULD have WebDAV support. But I don't see anything about it in the page you sent me, it seems to only talk about the . So I can't tell you that this particular solution will work for you.

4. I have no idea about the specific service but if it says it supports Swift it SHOULD work.
