I was hunting around for another backup to pull rsnapshot's too, like backupsy. Whilst not using centos, I found these ARM options: The server for all your projects - So you Start SYS did have an arm lab earlier last year, crazy core counts for very few $. The pricing is, or was ARM's great point, along with low power requirements, trade off is processing speed... There was a openstack provider who had arm options, but priced it the same as intel; then dropped it as no demand... funny that. Anyhow, on the ARM backups units, any thoughts? Code: ARM-2T Cortex A9 ARMv7 2c 1 GHz 2 GB 2 TB £9.17 ex. VAT (or £11.00 incl. VAT) That's actually cheaper than the backupsy I'm using, almost cheap enough to have one per server . I'll spin one up later.
