Cloud plans ready for Windows Server 2022 and Windows 11 PCs
Are you looking for affordable, low-cost, and reliable cloud storage for Windows Server backups? Our cloud storage plans are among the most reliable with 99.99% uptime since 2013. But BackupChain cloud storage isn’t just a storage offering: we offer the entire backup package with full service and fixed pricing.
And, unlike other providers, there are no charges for downloads (restores) and accessing your data, and U.S. technical support is included. Our cloud plans are an affordable, robust, and high-speed option to diversify your backup strategy and protect your business against data loss. Combine your local backup strategy with a remote backup option for your files servers, Microsoft Exchange, Hyper-V, VMware, SQL, or any other data or service backed up using BackupChain. Our cloud-backup algorithms in BackupChain ensure that only the daily changes need to be transmitted over the wire.
What Kinds of Cloud Backup are Possible?
Use BackupChain as an affordable and efficient solution for a wide range of applications. These include, for example, Windows Server cloud backups, Windows PC cloud backups, file server, Hyper-V, VMware, VirtualBox, SQL, and Exchange Server cloud backups.
Hyper-V Cloud Backup
Use BackupChain to create local backups as well as cloud backups of your Hyper-V virtual machines. VHD and VHDX files are deduplicated before they are uploaded to save significant amounts of space (upwards of 80% per backup).
VMware Cloud Backup
If you are using a VMware product, such as VMware Workstation, your VMDKs are compressed and deduplicated to create an efficient backup chain in the cloud. Virtual machines are not paused when the backup tasks are processing your VMs, and the VMs are thus not affected in any way, making BackupChain the perfect VMware cloud backup solution.
File Server Cloud Backup
Create efficient cloud backups of your file servers with strong encryption and multiple, parallel uploads. Our proprietary server-side scan feature optimizes the transfer so that only new and altered files are sent over the wire, nothing else. The result? Very short backup cycles, even if your file server holds millions of folders.
SQL and Exchange Server Cloud Backup
Even if you are running a complicated server setup with multiple services, such as Microsoft SQL Server and Exchange Server, you can back them all up with BackupChain to the cloud. Our cloud accounts handle any size of database or virtual machine, so there are no limitations to worry about. The transfers are always deduplicated so that incremental backups are kept as small as possible.
VirtualBox Cloud Backup
Our platform offers VirtualBox Cloud Backup with the same benefits as for Hyper-V and VMware, whether local or remote or to the cloud. Benefit from fast compression, encryption, and deduplication of your VDIs. BackupChain’s features ensure that VMs keep running smoothly during backup, and uploads are kept as short as possible.
Disk Image Cloud Backup
Disk images created with BackupChain may be also backed up to the cloud for additional protection against local risks, such as ransomware, fire, theft, etc. Disk images are recommended for operating system disks to preserve the configuration and software packages on the server, whereas specialized tools should be used for virtual machines and databases, as described above.
Technical Support is Included in All Plans
It’s very important to receive assistance when you need it and we are proud to offer personalized, reliable, and competent technical support to all our customers. You may reach us by email, phone, and live chat. Our technical support team is available from 9am-5pm ET and based in Baltimore, MD, USA.
All-Inclusive Plan: No Surprises, No Contracts
Benefit from All inclusive pricing: there are no setup fees, and no other fees whatsoever. Pricing is also fixed, this means there are no bandwidth charges, no hidden fees, no file access fees, no setup or termination fees. There also no “minimum” storage periods. You can replace files as often as needed without increasing the storage used. There are also no contracts involved and no charges for moving your data out of the cloud.
Long History of Reliable Service, Trusted Worldwide, Online Since 2013
Our secured servers are located in Baltimore, MD, USA. The past uptime is well over 99.99% and the service has been online since January 2013. A fully functional and free trial available of our software BackupChain Backup Software can be downloaded from this website. BackupChain purchases are backed by our 110% Money-back guarantee. BackupChain is trusted by notable companies, with tens of thousands of installations around the world.
Accessibility and Security
Military strength encryption occurs before data leaves your computer. Data remains encrypted “at rest” on our servers until you download it. When you restore data, decryption occurs on your own computer and with a password you define.
Cloud storage accessible via FTP and FTPS secure links, and mounted virtual drives using DriveMaker. We offer DriveMaker Plus free licenses for accessing your cloud storage via a mounted drive letter in Windows.
Save Storage Space and Minimize Backup Time
Efficient backup to the cloud is possible using BackupChain’s deduplication technology: Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, Hyper-V VMs, VMware VMs, and databases, are backed up with incremental deltas. This ensures minimal bandwidth and storage usage. File server folder structures are pre-scanned on the servers to optimize incremental backup process in the case of file server cloud backups.

Benefit: Storage is Compressed and Deduplicated
Please note that the above capacities, such as 2TB, are the total capacity of the account; however, the data is compressed, encrypted, and deduplicated before it is sent to your account and that dramatically reduces the storage usage. As a rule of thumb, the storage used is under 60% for regular documents. In other words, 100 GB of documents would usually require less than 60 GB storage space.
Substantial discounts are available for two and three year plans.
Discounts are also available for non-profit and educational organizations.
Please contact sales for an accurate quote that suits your needs.
How to get started
Feel free to discuss your needs with our sales department. Payments are handled securely online. After arranging your cloud plan with our sales department, you will receive an invoice via email that can be paid securely online at your convenience.
Seeding and Recovery Options
We offer an offline seeding option where you send us your external drive with your encrypted data on it. You may choose to have it returned or we keep it in storage if you ever need a recovery disk sent back to you. A recovery disk is an external hard disk that contains all your data. It is shipped to you so you don’t have to download all your files over the internet. This is useful when your internet connection is relatively slow. The recovery option below includes the cost of a new recovery external hard drive and US postage.

Why BackupChain Backup to Cloud?
Simple, All-in-one Solution
Simply clone your local backup task and change target settings to use the cloud and you’re done. Restore from anywhere even on new servers. Restore via an FTP client is also possible with limitations.
3-2-1 Data Protection
The 3-2-1 strategy of data protection recommends creating three backups: two local backups on different media and one offsite backup.
BackupChain cloud service is fully integrated into BackupChain.

Up to 75% of small business organizations experience a tape failure yearly. You could use cloud backups to mitigate tape risks, too.
Note that a BackupChain license is required in order to access a hosting plan and each server requires a separate hosting account. An FTPS interface is available for recovery purposes only. Please allow 1-3 business days to have your account set up. A representative will be contacting you with all access information required.
