Cloudberry works great with s3. You can let cloudberry or s3 version depending on if you will use lifecycle policies to push to glacier. Lots of file retention options too.

Some possible candidates such as S3 Backup (free), Jungle Disk ($4/month), DragonDisk (free), and CloudBerry Online Backup (~$120). CB is preferred as it is quite established, handle file server  as compared to other which still very much desktop based focus. CB also handles VM restoration as compared to other that may simply treat the VM as another big "files" to backup - check out its link http://www.cloudberrylab.com/amazon-s3-bare-metal-recovery-system-state-backup.aspx

Actually there is glazier -  more for in case where you have a large amount of data that will not change often and normally it is back up to recover from a catastrophe. S3 being a cheaper option and is suited for data that changes often.

If you're a full Microsoft stack, as an alternative to S3 and third party backup solutions, you might look at using Microsoft DPM locally, and replicating it to a server in colo, although S3 is not that expensive, by the time you're storing TB, a colo server can work out considerably more cost effective

AWS has something called the Storage Gateway.

It allows you to use whichever tools you want to use internally, including tools you may already have, and even tape. To the internal systems and to backup agents it looks like VTL or like local storage. However it's backend is ultimately AWS S3.
This means that you can have your large backup jobs finished very quickly, and let the gateway synch up with S3 in its due time.
