Sort by: Date / Title / URL

  1. Alternative to CrashPlan. Seems nice, same price (near enough) but will delete external drive files after 30 days. Sucky.
  2. Encrypted backups which don't require you to trust the backup provider, although the code is open source but not free (as in freedom) and so there is only one possible provider...
  3. Rsync to S3 is a service which combines EC2 and S3 to provide a bandwidth efficient S3 based backup mechanism. It takes advantage of the free bandwidth between EC2 and S3 to overcome the limitations of S3 for rsync backup.
  4. S3sync and s3cmd are ruby interfaces to Amazon S3. S3cmd provides a command line interface to manage S3 buckets. S3sync provides a command line interface to copy data to and from S3.
  5. Duplicity performs incremental, encrypted backups onto a range of interfaces including scp, ftp, rsync, WebDAV and Amazon S3. It uses standard tar, rsync and GPG tools, so the data can be recovered manually.

  10. JS3tream will read stdin and write the data to Amazon S3. It can be wsed with tar or gzip for online backup. It can also read from S3 back to stdout. Data is stored in sequentially numbered files, so it could be reconstructed with cat.

  12. is a backup service based on Amazon S3. You upload your files (via a flash uploader) to and they store them on S3. They charge a small premium over S3 prices.
