Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I like being able to pause the uploads for different time periods like I had with carbonite. Also backup services allow people to access multiple versions of a file if their computer goes under. I like these features and I want to know my data is relatively secure which I am sure it is. If you are syncing files anyway you might as well back them up too. My upload bandwidth is limited and I want it handled by one service not two. Also I want to be able to limit the bandwidth that is taken by ubuntu one as it slows my internet down. I hope that you are willing to listen to your customers needs. Have your Ceo give me a time frame as to when this will happen.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

I want to take a moment to clear up a few misconceptions here. First of all Ubuntu One is not a backup service. It is a cloud storage, streaming, sync, and sharing service much like Dropbox. There is no CEO of Ubuntu One, please read my aforementioned link. Lastly this is Ask Ubuntu where we offer community support for questions about Ubuntu and related software. You only have really one valid question in this mix and that is "How can I limit bandwidth with Ubuntu One" if you're interested in that solution please ask a new question. –  Marco Ceppi Oct 8 '11 at 4:28
That being said, the Ubuntu One team uses Ask Ubuntu as a part of their Community Support system. In the future, when asking questions about Ubuntu One or other Ubuntu related question please try to keep the scope of the post to one question, creating multiple questions if needed. It's easier and far more efficient to address a single question per post and yields far more successful results. Lastly welcome to Ask Ubuntu, for more information feel free to browse our FAQ and pose any questions about Ask Ubuntu on our meta –  Marco Ceppi Oct 8 '11 at 4:33
@Marco, Oneiric's recommended backup solution (deja dup) includes an option to backup to U1. U1 aspires to be a complete personal cloud, and backup is clearly a part of that. So, I would not predict "it likely will never be a backup service." –  poolie Oct 8 '11 at 8:22
That said, I think "when will X?" questions are almost always unanswerable, and like this one they should be closed. Unless the project has already publicly committed to a date (which is understandably pretty rare) any community answer will be just speculation. –  poolie Oct 8 '11 at 8:24
