Carbonite or Mozy (online automated backup) for Linux?
Has anyone found a way to either use one of these services under linux (using wine or crossoveroffice maybe?). Or is there an alternative that I might be able to use under Linux? I have an onsite backup, but I'd like to have off site automated backup as well. . .

Any ideas would be appreciated.

So no one has any ideas? Best I've found so far is X Drive which is more expensive and limits you to only 50GB. . .

If anyone knows of something else, please let me know. Thanks,

You might want to investigate s3 from Amazon. I have not used this myself but have heard good things (and it's cheap) - there are many tools available or you could always roll-your-own. I found this for example:

Thanks for the tip. Looking into it (good thing I didn't pay for Xdrive yet). Jungle Disk looks like the easiest choice for doing automated backups (or S3 Firefox Organizer). . .

Maybe over the weekend I'll have some time to get it all figured out. Thanks again.

Unlimited Offsite Backup Service
here's a service that offers a Basic Package that costs less than mozy and carbonite. Supports Rsync, SFTP, Rdiff, SSH.

Check out SpiderOak & JungleDisk. Both offer the ability to "backup, synchronize, share, access, and store" files on Linux.

you can't beat Dropbox is natively compatible with Linux, Mac, and Windows. Basically your 'dropbox' is a directory on your system. Anything you put into this directory (or on linux you can additionally create sym links from other directories within) will be automatically synced and backed up. Dropbox also has an add on service to roll back files and directories to previous's kinda like a combination between file backup and revision control. Currently they only allow up to 100GB accounts, but I'm fairly certain they're working toward a higher limit in the near future ;). The account pricing starts at FREE for 2GB, then goes to 9.99 per month for 50GB, and 19.99 per month for 100GB. I currently own a 50GB account. Their web interface is also AWESOME for anywhere access. because of the quick sync feature, you can also store stuff like password databases, browser profiles, etc in your dropbox and any computer connected to your dropbox has access to the same files. You can also selectively choose which folders sync on which computers with their newest software. If that isn't enough, there are apps for both iphone and android. Dropbox is hands-down the best option out there for backup/sync today.

I know this thread is old, but found this one via google search, so I hope this will help someone else. I use crashplan by code42. They are reliable, fast and the software is coded well. I use proE version, but I am sure the home version is just as good on linux. Hope this helps!
