Online backups for the truly paranoid
Tarsnap is a secure online backup service for BSD, Linux, OS X, Minix, Solaris, Cygwin, and probably many other UNIX-like operating systems. The Tarsnap client code provides a flexible and powerful command-line interface which can be used directly or via shell scripts.
At the present time, Tarsnap does not support Windows (except via Cygwin) and does not have a graphical user interface.

With five minutes to download and install Tarsnap and $5 for an initial deposit, you can get started with Tarsnap today and stop worrying about whether your data is safe.
Tarsnap works on a prepaid model based on actual usage.
|Storage:||300 picodollars / byte-month
($0.30 / GB-month)
|Bandwidth:||300 picodollars / byte
($0.30 / GB)
These prices are based on the actual number of bytes stored and the actual number of bytes of bandwidth used — after compression and data deduplication. This makes Tarsnap ideal for daily backups — many users have hundreds of archives adding up to several terabytes, but pay less than $10/month.
Tarsnap has no fixed or minimum monthly fees!
Tarsnap is billed only based on actual usage — if you only store a small amount of data, a $5 payment might last you for years.
