This may or may not work for you, but when it came time to implement an offsite back i did not want to get locked down to paying for a particular service.
Instead, i purchased a Synology NAS box loaded with 4TB worth of hard drive space in RAID1. On my FileMaker Server, i run my normal backup routine every hour, and twice a day, i have a script that runs which backs up to the NAS device located offsite.
I've used Rob Russell's shell script and found it reliable for archiving the Backups folder with all of our FM 11 files to a another HD.
For our Off-Site backup, I use CrashPlan as it only requires a named folder to locate al ofl the zipped files therein.
I hope this helps,
Not sure what you mean by "zipped files". I'm want to take the standard FMS backup files and archive them to a remote location. I use FMS scheduler to make onboard backups, Time Machine to make BUs to an external RAID, and also burn to a DVD each morning.
If I use CrashPlan to make online backups, it will accumulate alomst 2 gig each day, right? So how does Crashplan make incremental backups when each day's backup is in a folder with a different timestamp? That's my dilemma. It definitely doesn't work with iBackup.
I wish Apple had an option to pay to have ANY files included in iCloud. At least for files generated by apps from companies Apple owns (like FMI)!
I don't see any value in an incremental backup for the archives that I want to save. I'd rather have eveything exactly as it was at the time that FMS made its backup. \
What I do for my CrashPlan achives is point it to a specific folder where I only retain zipped backups of files from the last 10 days. They are zipped and put there using one of Rob's shell scripts run from a specific schedule.
The zipped file is ca one fifth as large as the original folder. In your case the 2 GB would be reduced to ca 400 MB with no loss of data.
I hope this helps to explain my procedure.
