Coding Horror: The Economics of BandwidthPosted: February 15, 2009 | Author: tech0x20 | Filed under: bookmarks | Tags: backups, bandwidth, hard drives | 1 Comment »
Interesting what the price of bandwidth is compared to hard drive pricing. I’m mostly interested in this from a backup perspective, and sending data to an offset backup via 2-500GB hard drives would figure to be cheaper than sending data to an Amazon-hosted backup solution.
I just realized this is from 2007. I don’t think the bandwidth costs have changed dramatically, but the hard drive price prices are very different.
