Backup to Server

I've been following recent articles on backup solutions that provide services to backup to external servers. As I've my own server I was wondering whether I can use SuperDuper to backup to the server via FTP. Unfortunately, FTP programs like Transmit are not reliable for that purpose.

A recent article on Macworld (http://www DOT macworld DOT com/article/142606/2009/09/online_backup.html?lsrc=rss_main) highlights the problem with having a local backup, e.g. burglary or your house burning down.

I don't like to subscribe to third party services like CrashPlan Central or Backblaze when, potentially, I could use my own server space for backups.

Can SuperDuper assist in doing a backup to an external server? or will it in the near future (knowing only too well that development on this app can take months, if not years).

In general, this is not an area we've focused on, no... and we have no immediate plans to do so.

Reconsider crashplan

You should reconsider crashplan as you can still use your own server, but use them as the transport/encryption mechanism. And it is relaiable.
