Mac OS X = UNIX

Cloud Storage for Offsite Backup ... for clueful Mac users.

 

rsync.net gives you a native UNIX filesystem in the cloud.    ANY tool that works over SSH will work with our platform.

If you're not sure what this means, our product is Not For You.

 

The Filesystem (and the Time Machine)

 

You can use a backup tool (like rsync) to transfer files, or just drag and drop with the finder. You can do the backups on a schedule, or on demand. You can access your files from any system, anywhere, without installing anything.

Your account is a normal filesystem, and will preserve permissions, access times, and other attributes of your files.[1]

Your account maintains daily and weekly versions[2], or "snapshots", of your data. These snapshots are live and fully browseable. This is identical to the "Time Machine" in OS X, except that it's offsite with us.

[1] rsync versions 3.10 and later have proper HFS metadata support, confirmed working with our platform
[2] 7 daily snapshots (7 daily + 4 weekly for TB+ accounts) are configured by default, but you may configure ANY NUMBER of days/weeks/months

 

Examples

 

rsync is already installed on your mac:

rsync -avX /Users/joe user@rsync.net:macs/joe

 

... and so is scp:

scp /Users/joe/photo.jpg user@rsync.net:files/photos

 

It's all just SSH, so you can mount locally with FUSE:

sshfs user@rsync.net: /Volumes/sshfs

 

... stash a copy of that repo that only exists on github:

ssh user@rsync.net "git clone git://github.com/LabAdvComp/UDR.git github/udr"

 

Now we're just showing off:

ssh user@rsync.net md5 some/file

mysqldump -u mysql db | ssh user@rsync.net "dd of=db_dump"

ssh user@rsync.net s3cmd get s3://rsynctest/mscdex.exe

 

A comprehensive list of all remote commands and tools available on our platform can be found here.
