I've tried a lot of different products. Backblaze, at least from a birds-eye view is significantly cheaper than AWS/the rest. Backblaze is a little more simpler, but it's well worth it.

Linode also provides backup options, however I'm only familiar with their backup on their VPS's (however you make that plural), which never gave me a problem.

because its easy to startup on it and also so easy to use, and again its just a one single place for control, create and recover your instances and environments. Great product overall and a must to have in your infrastructure.
Also we recommend try it and even daily or monthly create a recovery test environment to check the all process in action.

Linode requires a minimum data purchase for their S3 storage solution. While the convenience of being able to mount the drive directly is great, it isn't the best for small amounts of data for our different customers.

I initially tried there other backup solution but they couldn't guarantee where the data would be stored in relation to the server we were using. The risk being an incident in our near our server could result in the loss of our backup as well.

The other method of backups we considered was a scheduled backup of important data to AWS S3 and manual backup of data to a third-party storage (local/other cloud service). It works, but it takes much more time than using AWS Backup. AWS Backup interfaces with AWS services, and as long as you use AWS services supported by AWS Backup, it might be the easiest solution to back up data.

Being an AWS service, AWS Backup integrates in a native way with other AWS services, providing an easy way to backup those services. Being able to create separate backup plans that meet specific business and regulatory compliance requirements provides us with capabilities to face auditing processes.

Well Microsoft Azure is cheaper but that said AWS has more hardware and software partners so that can give a real deep integration to your AWS files. Also AWS also has a lot more support option, and is older and more mature. That said AWS isn't as easy or as pretty as Microsoft Azure is. For people just starting out I would use Microsoft Azure.
