Bitcasa sound promising – however, they don’t seem to provide unlimited space anymore. It’s now $25 / month for 25GB and $250 / month for 2.5TB. In other words, very expensive.
– Either you made a mistake and should update your information.
– Or I misunderstood, in which case I would appreciate if you would help me understand how to get unlimited space for 10$ pr month.

    Crashplan offers unlimited storage for $6 per month (less if you pay ahead)

    SpiderOak offers 100GB for $10 per month.

    Wuala offers 100GB for €9 per month (about $12)*

    I do suggest testing the offerings beforehand and evaluate how long it takes for your regular backups to be uploaded. It doesn't really make sense to use such a service if your daily backups take half a week to be uploaded.

    * Wuala is more of an option for European users duo to their data centers being in central Europe

    Thanks, that clears things up a bit. However, it is now 99$/m for unlimited - ie 10 times what it used to be :(

    You were apparently looking at the pricing for their platform solutions. Their personal solutions still have an unlimited option, but their pricing has changed. It has gone up to $99/month for unlimited. You can get up to 20GB free and up to 1TB for $10/month. See Bitcasa Personal for more details.
