    Default FTPS, SFTP, Cloud Storage support for Backups [Case 57547]

    It would be grand to have more options available for WHM backup. For example, many people now have access to the likes of Amazon S3, raw OpenStack or Rackspace CloudFiles (the one problem with OpenStack seems to be that not all clients support object sizes greater than 5Gb although the API does allow for it).

    In addition for cloud storage services that proxy FTP and FTPS requests, having that support would be great as well.

    +1 a bit like the authentication plugin feature an option to be able to create new backup solution plugins would be great. You could supply default ones like ftp, scp, AmazonS3 etc and allow us to create new ones so we could add other cloud backup solutions.

    This is something we are considering for our overhaul of the backup system targeted for 11.34.

    Very cool

    As long as OpenStack is considered as part of that (as we run our own OpenStack implementation and it'd be great to get our customers backing up to it as as consequence).

    Update: Work on a pluggable backup system is essentially done: https://trello.com/card/as-a-system-...56d262afd2f/24

    SFTP will be natively supported, that work is also essentially done as well: https://trello.com/card/i-want-to-st...156d262afd2f/1

    How about SSH backup and RSYNC directly over SSH?
