I’ve been using OpenDrive via rclone for my server backup. It’s been…ok. For the space I certainly can’t complain about the price - but the speed leaves much to be desired.
I’m assuming the primary limiter is rclone - that because restic can’t talk to the backend directly there’s a significant level of inefficiency. If I’m wrong please correct me.
But if I’m correct - that means one of the other storage providers that restic can “natively” speak to will be faster. But storage from Google, Amazon, BackBlaze is charged both by total storage and by transactions. As I use cron-based backups with varying schedules (some hourly, other daily, weekly, etc.) for different data areas there can be a range of interaction with the storage.
Is there a way of estimating the transactions/bandwidth for upload/download that can be used with the various backend providers’ calculators to estimate storage costs?
