If you want to protect your assets on SBS 2011 Essentials even further and back up your data to cloud storage powered by Windows Azure and Amazon S3, check out CloudBerry Backup add-on for SBS 2011 Essentials (code name Aurora). . It is one time fee and the rest what you pay for Azure or Amazon S3. Besides, there is no proprietary data format and you can access your data using other Amazon s3 and Azure tools.
