 Backing up your bits

Nice (but short) article that talks about putting a server in a remote datacenter and using it for backups.

"There are a couple of choices for software for doing the backups. The key is that it has to be bandwidth smart (only update diffs), handle versioning gracefully and be able to do partial copies based on a timer. The last requirement is so that if I have a ton of data to upload it can go over a couple of nights. The most obvious candidate for this is rsync. rsync is an amazing tool for these types of things.
