Zfs has send/receive where you can do snapshots and send them to a
different host. This could be your backup-host. I'm considering this
solution myself where FreeBSD and zfs is my primary host and my
nightly backups will be send to my solaris-host. Solaris has the
required lto-3-drivers.


When lenity and cruelty play for a kingdom,
the gentlest gamester is the soonest winner.
