Hello all!

Please, I will like a recommendation for a security conscious cloud
back up service. Also, one that I can easily migrate from when I want

I've found most backup providers to be too expensive. I have about 2TB of data to be backed up, so I just do two hard drives, one in an onsite fireproof safe and another offsite (friend's house, safe deposit box, etc.)

You also might consider setting up a cheap box at a friend's house, and having your friend do the same.

If you don't have all that much data to back up, you could just use a USB stick that you carry around in your pocket.

But, to more directly answer your question, I set up my own, hosting through linode (https://www.linode.com/), and then you can set up whatever services you want (I'm partial to Rsync).
