I am trying to have an offline/online backup (never know which term is more appropriate). I use SBS 2008 Standard and do backups to eSata drives and NAS. I would like to do a backup to my home using a RAID5 server with nothing else on it.
From my reading of Rsync, it would allow me to "seed" it with the 65GBs of the first backup, and then use the Rsync technology to send small amounts of data each day. I read how to set it up, but I wasn't sure how to do the networking.
The other possibility would be to set up a VPN and "seed" it as well. My Backup Program (Backup Assist) has a type of backup where you can mirror and it only sends new and updated files similar to Rsync.
I have a PIX-501 at either end, both with the capability of doing Easy-VPN. The host machine is using a static IP while the remote machine where I want to put the backup is using dynamic. I do have a program called No-IP on it.
Is it possible to set this up and how would I do it. My backup program can do Rsync and the Mirror backup described above. I know that Amazon has an S3, etc. backup for Rsync, but one, it seemed a bit difficult and two, it does cost money both for the amount of data and the bandwidth used.
Thanks in advance.
