Log backups to server OnCompletion of log backup Maintenance Plan Subplan

We currently use Maintenance Plans for full, diff and log backups. I'd like to send log backups to another server on the successful completion of a log backup Maintenance Plan Subplan. The completion would be enforced via a Precedence Constraint. Our log backups are hourly and would constitute about 30GBs per-day or a bit over a GB per-hour. Is SSIS FTP and/or the SSIS File System Task appropriate for such a high-volume scenario? Robocopy and/or XCopy are not options. Robocopy was problematic for us.

Please answer if you have experience with this or if you have experience with another approach that achieves the same goal.

Thanks!

I currently do the same with my transaction log backups.
I created a maintenance plan, the first step does the backups and the second step transfers the data to a remote server where I maintain a read only copy of the databases
i currently use WinSCP with SSL to transfer the files and it works ok for me
