pindakoe Posted March 31, 2011 Report Share Posted March 31, 2011 I have since years been rsnapshot to maintain a (limited) set of previous versions of /home and and selected parts of / and below. Since a year this is to a NAS in my own local LAN, all to full satisfaction. I would like to add a second level of protection by starting offsite backup. I am not hopefull that I will maintain the discipline to do this manually be external harddisk, so am looking to online possibilities. I have browsed around and seen many tools and storage offers, but they all seem to fall short on what I believe my requirements to be: Data gets encrypted before leaving my HD Runs as root so that can access whole file-system (large parts will be excluded, but I do for instance backup /root and other parts requiring root access) Can be run from cron, i.e. command-line. A UI to get started and define backup sets has limited to no value for me as the likely client will be a headless NAS (running Debian). Ability to define (large) in/excludes with globbing like rsync Software available for PowerPC (my NAS runs on this ancient but frugal hardware) Full / incremental backups, preferably using rsync like approach Scalable; at moment I probably need 20 Gb, but this number continues to grow I am interested in your experiences on these requirements (is there something that I am overlooking), recommendations for software and experiences with storage providers. Realise that some software means one storage provider only (or vice-versa) and have no preference for all-in-one packages (spideroak, crashplan) vs free things (duplicity). Free would be nice, but pay-as-you go is OK as well, provided we talk consumer rates. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
