Can Cloud Replication Equivalent be Accomplished via Current Sync or Plugin Options?

Jan 4, 2013
I am looking for a cloud back-up solution for a FreeNAS server with snapshots running. Locally, I have used replication to copy the snapshots to another FreeNAS machine. Easy enough.

But, I would like to do the same thing (or potentially something a little different but the same level of data protection) to a cloud location.

There is Cloud Sync. But, if the source dataset suffers some kind of damage that goes unnoticed, that problem will apparently be copied to the cloud back-up too. It seems that I either need to copy snapshots (hopefully in an efficient manner) or the cloud solution has to create its own incremental snapshots as it receives new data.

Does anyone know of a solution for this? I would like to use the plugins or features already built into FreeNAS rather than building a new jail for this purpose.

Thank you.
