Keepit is a very good value online backup service which would be perfect for businesses looking for a cost effective storage solution. Home users who only require basic backup features would be hard pushed to find a better price for the unlimited storage on offer, but Keepit doesn't offer all the extra features that some of its competitors do. However, as a basic backup service neither home nor business users will be disappointed.
Keepit's web site is neat and well organised and these qualities can also easily be applied to its online backup service. Unlike many of its competitors Keepit concentrates on doing one thing well and doesn't concern itself with providing fancy extra features or a huge variety of products. Backup is the name of the game with Keepit and a back end based on IBM's robust enterprise grade systems ensures a top quality service.
Keepit have built their own front end however, so you would never know you are interacting with a high grade technical system. If you are a home user simply download the software to begin backing up your hard drive then set it to backup at regular intervals whenever it's convenient. A full version history of all your files is kept so you can revert easily to any point in the past. Again, it's just a case of clicking a few buttons on the easy to use client application to restore your whole hard drive in the event of a disaster.
Business users will appreciate the high specification back end to Keepit's service which makes for a highly secure and reliable service. Users, groups and permissions can all be controlled via a central administration console, which is very easy to use. Unusually Keepit also allows you to manage licenses from this console too, which takes the huge headache out of keeping track of how many licenses you have and need. There aren't many providers offering this feature, especially at such a low price, so this scores Keepit big points!
Keepit doesn't offer some of the features that many home users will want, such as iPhone applications or online file sharing, but it does do basic backup very well and for a very reasonable price. Business users may find a few features lacking, but the excellent central administration console that manages licenses as well as users more than makes up for anything else. A free trial is available and we would highly recommend giving it a try!
