New off-site backup solution –

I signed up with for an off-site filesystem. Opted for geo-redundant version (automated nightly replication to other site) located in Zurich, Switzerland. Very fast speed from Europe and Qatar, good speed with US hosts. Very easy to use from Mac OS X, FreeBSD, Linux and Windows (rsync, ftp, scp, sftp, ssh, WebDAV). Direct integration in Finder, just use “Connect to Server” and enter the hostname address with https. On Linux and FreeBSD 6.x sshfs works like a charm. Easy to install on FreeBSD using ports, just cd /usr/ports/sysutils/fusefs-sshfs and run make install clean.
