Running Linux Client at AWS

Recommended Posts

Retrospect can leverage Amazon S3 Storage for cloud backups but has anyone tried installing the Retrospect Linux client on a Linux instance running at AWS and pulling back backups rather than simply trust the AWS infrastructure?  Perhaps its more than trusting the resilience of AWS infrastructure ... perhaps its more of a case of wanting a copy of the data "in-house" in case I want to host elsewhere.

One of the points Retrospect make about their Cloud Backup option is that you are not locked into a given provider as you can always "transfer" your backups to another S3 Compatible Storage provider.  I'm sure that may take a while, but it can be done.  In this case I'm thinking about keeping backups of a hosted machine "in-house" such that the data could be restored to another service provider should I choose.
