Cloud Backup

Postby Dismayed » Mon Jul 09, 2018 8:26 am

I'm looking for a cloud backup solution that will work with ZFS. I've been using CrashPlan because I like automated backups, but they are exiting the home market. So what have people here been using? And are there any tips and tricks needed to enable ZFS backups with the various cloud vendors? Something reasonable in cost would be good - i have about 4 TB to back up.

You guys are backing up your data, aren't you?

I don't. Or rather, I have zpools in multiple locations/countries, and just "zfs send -i" between them :)

Me either. Zfs send or rsync to NAS.

I grabbed an article on these guys back in December 2015. Haven't used them, just thought I might want to one of these days.

That said, I'm looking into Backblaze, their price is pretty good, as is their supporting the HD using community with regular reliability reports. Backing up to NAS, with infrequent offsite backups and small cloud backups of the most precious files.

Oops, should have mentioned,

Our open-standards based platform is a ZFS filesystem, accessible with any SSH/SFTP tool, running on a UNIX system.

I have a large photo archive of several TB, so the rsync pricing at $40/TB each month is a bit high.

I received this reply from Backblaze:

"We do not currently support backing up ZFS volumes."

Avoiding the /Volumes/ hierarchy may be all that's necessary to make Backblaze back up a ZFS volume:

I'd love to hear whether this has changed.

Thank you for the link. Arq backup to Backblaze B2 looks very promising.
