Using the XCP toolset on the server side, are any good solutions to backup up each server to the cloud (Approximately 1TB each). What I am looking for is the ability to do a bare metal backup in case local backups fail. Are there any Commercial solutions that provide this? Are there any open source solutions that provide this using Amazon or other such provider as a backend?
