Cloud Backup with duplicacy and duplicati
Using a remote storage for backups is a good idea. In case of fire or other catastrophes, your data is still save at the remote storage. If you are looking for a backup software which saves your files on a remote storage you will soon come to duplicacy and duplicati. Both products meet the following basic requirements:
- data encryption (before sending to the cloud)
- cloud backend support
- file versioning
- incremental backup
Have a look at the Backup Software comparison table to get an idea how other software products perform.
Duplicati failed not only because of the crashes that I discovered several times but also because of its lack to continue a canceled restore or backup. My restore would have taken 5 days and the possibility of an interruption (e.g. short network disconnect) in this period is likely. Furthermore is duplicati lacking a parallelism feature which would make backups and restores way faster.
