Cloud Backup Solutions – Pricing Change March 2016

We have been keen not to increase our base pricing as much as possible, whilst all other service providers around us increase our infrastructure and supporting service costs by 10% per annum. The last pricing changes we made were in June 2015 when we actually substantially reduced pricing across the board.

Due to the ongoing increase in costs of providing the leading Cloud Backup service in South Africa, we will be implementing the following price changes on 1 March 2016:

* Tier 1 pricing will increase from R100 to R120 for 20Gb fixed storage

* Tier 2 pricing will increase from R37.50 to R39.00 per 10Gb stored

* Tier 3 pricing will increase from R35.00 to R36.00 per 10Gb stored

These price increases are extremely small but have been structured to ensure that we can continue to grow the cloud backup environment without any additional impact to our bottom line.

The new pricing can be more simply viewed in this table:

Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3
0 – 20Gb 20 – 250Gb 250Gb+
R120.00 fixed cost R39.00 per 10Gb stored R36.00 per 10Gb stored


We will update the example pricing post and also the pricing page effective 1st March 2016.

We will also be adding VAT as soon as we have become VAT registered. Invoices will therefore soon reflect VAT as an additional line item prior to the grand total.
