whm offsite backups

I have a VPS server running WHM 11.44.2 with  hosting company managing 14 day retention of full bare metal backups. However to restore a specific file I have to create a new VPS, copy across data and then find file etc.

I know I can create a full WHM back of all sites (currently around 30gb) which will give me quicker access but what are your recommended solutions for creating an offsite backup?

 I reviewed http://www.rsyncit.com and Amazon S3 (where I don't quite understand the pricing model) and am trying to get the best solutiuon. Idealy I would love a reasonably priced system that back-ups in real time.

Having to restore a file is something that happens 3-4 times a year and is usually related to a WordPress mess up/update.

As both my local WHM back up and the hosting company backups are in the same server farm then having an offsite would be critical if something happens to the server farm.

Thanks.

according to this you can set ftp as a backup location from WHM, but with 30gb thats not really ideal. Just putting it out there as an option for you to do while you figure out the better way
https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/ALD/Backup+Configuration

rsyncit.com is just a backup target (well it's a pretty pretty backup target with a cpanel management interface) where you can send backups to. Other examples of this type of target service are:
http://www.serversync.com/
https://www.strongspace.com/
http://www.rsync.net/
http://www.bqbackup.com/

What you might be looking for is a cpanel plugin to easily send your backups somewhere:

you can also use something not integrated into cpanel
http://backuppc.sourceforge.net/info.html
or just make your own rsync scripts: http://linuxconfig.org/using-rsync-over-ssh-an-ultimate-backup-tool

I hope this clears up some of your options.

If it's just Wordpress there are free plugins that backup your sites and databases automatically. Local storage, email, ftp, some even connect to aws. Have you looked at these?
