Cloud backup will be offered first in the U.S. and Australia and expanded to all the MCPs by the end of this year, he said. Pricing will start at US$10 per cloud server plus $0.10 per gigabyte of storage per month. Initially it will be tied to the CaaS platform, but in the future customers will be able to use cloud backup by itself, Caindec said. Customers will also be able to back up data from Dimension's cloud to their own facilities or to those of other cloud providers, he said.
