Plans & Pricing
JustCloud can accommodate any storage needs. Business plans start at 100 GB but can be expanded to unlimited amounts of space. This cloud backup for business solution can grow with your business. However, there is a 5 GB file size restriction when you try to upload large amounts of data at once.
After the initial backup process, you get to set up subsequent saves with JustCloud. You can schedule automated backups that can take place while your computers are idling. You can also designate how much bandwidth you want to dedicate to the backup process. JustCloud uses deduplication technology to conserve resources. That means that a unique piece of data is stored only one time, even if you save it multiple times.
When you share a file stored in JustCloud with someone, you can password-protect it. That way, you can be sure the files you share will be accessible only by the intended recipient. This is not one of the services that allows you your own encryption key, which can be a drawback for some, though not everyone wants total control.
The files you back up with JustCloud are available to you from any internet-connected device, including mobile phones. You can download files from the desktop platform and from the online dashboard. There are JustCloud apps for iPhone and Android that allow you to access anything, from anywhere. You can also send specific files to employees and clients.
With this business backup solution, you can give each member of your team a control panel to manage the files they've saved with JustCloud. There is also an administrative panel that controls how much access each team member is permitted. You can designate how much storage each member can use and monitor who is changing what.
You can contact JustCloud by phone or email, though we did not get great responses to our emailed inquiries. The website offers a knowledgebase, FAQs and demos.
JustCloud falls short of other cloud storage providers by not providing the option of our own encryption key and by not having more ways to ease the transition to business cloud storage, such as shipping a physical disk of your data. The 5 GB max file size is also a big restriction, which can be a deal breaker for businesses that deal with heavy data files.
