Has anyone ever used public cloud storage to directly back up data on an AIX based system? That is, without first saving the data to a windows systems or local SAN.

Can cloud storage be mounted as a filesystem on AIX?

OK, so are you aware of any public cloud storage that could be implemented using these?

Amazon, OpenStack (Think rackspace) has support for that. I'd guess only dropbox will not really fit your need.

You need automounter, so it unmounts remote storage when not in use and mounts it back when needed (you know long network distances etc)

Planning to connect this locally, and leave it connected on a "permanent" basis. To be used for archiving.

automount is exactly to have it unmounted while not archiving (AIX does not let force-unmount NFS if there are pending writes, nor it remounts)
