iDrive.com had a special going where they gave you 3TB for $3.50 for the first year. I don't know if the deal is still in effect. I posted a link to it here somewhere.

I went ahead and got it, though I figure I'll use it and then cancel before the auto-renewal kicks in.

And just for the record, I have no connection to iDrive whatsoever, I just thought it was a deal worth mentioning. 3TB for a year for $3.50 ain't bad.

I stayed with Google drive - i'm recording 247 locally and upon motion detection i send a clip to google drive.

This is relatively easy to set up with Blue Iris and google drive on same PC. (1 physical camera - 1 cloned - one feed records 247 to local drive, cloned feed records to a specific folder that is synced to Google drive by google drive app).

Gives me the redundancy im looking for without having to spend massive bandwidth / Cloud storage disk space.
