Plesk Backup to Amazon S3: testing phase

We are currently testing some solutions to an efficient way of syncing the Plesk Backups (see the previous post about creating them) to Amazon S3.

So far, the candidates are:
- s3fs, Fuse Over Amazon project on Google Code
- Subcloud, the commercial supported version of s3fs
- JungleDisk, Desktop Edition, with support for Linux, MacOS and Windows

What we want: a mounted directory to the Amazon S3 (US or EU) bucket on our testing server, followed by a cronjob that will so a “local” rsync of the Plesk Backup directory.

We’ll be back with complete details.

    I’ve been thinking about this forever. Did you manage to get it working?

    One pitfall would be the bandwith fee by the hosting provider.

    good luck!
