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.
Your account maintains daily and weekly versions, 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.
 rsync versions 3.10 and later have proper HFS metadata support, confirmed working with our platform
 7 daily snapshots (7 daily + 4 weekly for TB+ accounts) are configured by default, but you may configure ANY NUMBER of days/weeks/months
rsync is already installed on your mac:
rsync -avX /Users/joe firstname.lastname@example.org:macs/joe
... and so is scp:
scp /Users/joe/photo.jpg email@example.com:files/photos
It's all just SSH, so you can mount locally with FUSE:
sshfs firstname.lastname@example.org: /Volumes/sshfs
... stash a copy of that repo that only exists on github:
ssh email@example.com "git clone git://github.com/LabAdvComp/UDR.git github/udr"
Now we're just showing off:
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org md5 some/file
mysqldump -u mysql db | ssh email@example.com "dd of=db_dump"
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org s3cmd get s3://rsynctest/mscdex.exe
A comprehensive list of all remote commands and tools available on our platform can be found here.
