Backup Overview

A modern backup solution for an individual client should be:
  • Non-generational (i.e. not have to rely on full and incremental chains)
  • De-Duplicate
  • Support Pruning (of old backups)
  • Support Cloud Storage (and encryption)
  • Open Source (Ideally)
A good (short) historical post on the evolution of rsync style backups is here over at Reddit

And some other background 


Duplicity is a well established traditional solution that supports Amazon Cloud Drive, but it relies on generational methods meaning a regular full backup is required. That's resource intensive with large data sets.

Restic is interesting, but doesn't work with many cloud providers; specifically Amazon Cloud Drive


Obnam and Borg are also interesting, but similarly fail with Amazon Cloud Drive.

Duplicati supports ACD as long as you're willing to add mono. Though it's still beta.
