    Rsync. Works great, saves bandwidth. But soon we will also be doing control panel backups to a separate server in the same data center (over private network).

    I rsync to a remote server for all my servers. For the cPanel ones, I have WHM backup to a second disk or directory, then rsync that entire directory off to the backup server. It is not a very fun way to do things (as it takes up a lot more disk space), but it works for the moment. I wish cPanel could integrate rsync into their WHM Backup system.

    We dump to local disks, rsync to local network storage, then package and move to offsite storage via custom scripts which manage the backup routines, ultimately the file transfers are done via rsync over ssh.
