Offsite Backup for Technical Mac Users
rsync.net gives you an empty UNIX filesystem that you can use as you see fit.
ANY tool that works over SSH will work with our platform.
If you're not sure what any of 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.
Your account is a normal filesystem, and will preserve permissions, access times, and other attributes of your files.
Your offsite filesystem maintains 7 days of versions, or "snapshots", of your data. These daily snapshots are live, and fully browseable. This is identical to the "Time Machine" in OSX, except that it's offsite with us.
 rsync versions 3.10 and later have proper HFS metadata support, confirmed working with our platform
rsync is already installed on your mac:
... and so is scp:
It's all just SSH, so you can mount locally with FUSE:
... stash a copy of that repo that only exists on github:
Now we're just showing off:
