I too have used rsnapshot for a long time on both Debian and Slackware.
I'd like to be able to backup certain data offsite, with an AWS instance
or some such.  I'm not sure that rsnapshot is really a good tool for
that, anyone have a suggestion?  It seems as though something that would
encrypt locally before the transfer would be ideal or, if I trust the
remote host, uses an SSH tunnel for the transfer.  I've used SpiderOak
in the past but one is limited to using their servers with the attendant
trust issues and now they no longer offer free hosting, pay to play as
it were.
