Server backup options?
If I want to backup both a local server (running Unraid) and a small handful of VPS to a storage-oriented server that I just got (ty crunchbits), what system would you all recommend? I've googled a bit and seen people talking about borg, restic, kopia, and just straight rsync or rclone, too. I would like to encrypt the backup ideally, and versioning would be nice to save space, but not absolutely necessary. I am also only semi-comfy on the command line, so if it's super in-depth to create upfront (i.e. good chance for me to fuck it up), not ideal either, lol.
I think @yoursunny can do all that with his IPv9+ with the Deepfreeze technology shenanigans he rolls around with. Payment methods are questionable, but hey we all gotta live once.
have you tried duplicati? its a great backup solution imo
I usually use rclone, because it already supports encryption & can be used for many providers, webdav & s3 https://rclone.org/#providers
In the past i heavily relied on rsync. Also used duplicity for a good while. For some projects i tried verious others others...such as bacula.... By now i'm slowly moving towards Proxmox Backup Server/Client.
The server is easy to set up. The client is also pretty decent to use https://pbs.proxmox.com/docs/backup-client.html . At the moment it only supports debian based distros by default, however building for other platforms also works. https://github.com/sg4r/proxmox-backup-client ... I'm testing a build/working on a port of the client for FreeBSD as well.

This ain't my service.
Every time someone posts this link and I click on it I get a boner.
I have heard really good things about it. But unfortunately, all my setups are CentOS 7 or AlmaLinux. I have to find some time to test thing with Cent/Alma
You can use rsnapshot. BUT the is no encryption. That is the data that you want to encrypt should be encrypted separately.
One thing to note is that you could use an encrypted-mirror-filesystem that supports reverse mode, usually via FUSE, like encfs or gocryptfs, and point your backup tool at that. This will result in your data being encrypted at rest and in transit without the tool needing to know anything about encryption. To restore mount the backed-up encrypted filesystem (or a copy there-of) in reverse mode and copy the decrypted data to where you want it.
