Tiered backup - how to?


I want to perform a backup on an hourly basis throughout the work day to a local (different machine) SFTP repository. I would then like on a daily basis to Rclone that SFTP repository across offsite to a different system.

The offsite backup would be driven by the host machine that the initial SFTP (local) repository resides on, not from the machine that the data is coming from as this machine may/will be turned off at night etc.

Is this possible ?


Yes, this is possible. Just perform the rclone on a schedule (e.g. cron or systemd timer) on the machine where the local repository lives.
