I wonder is Stephan meant Google Storage instead...
UPDATE: Just read that is uses "appdata" directory. Mom and dad will not 'see' the data.
I have 30Mbps down/.5Mbps up. It takes about a minute to upload one JPEG off my DSLR. I can't imagine how much time it would take to upload a ~100gb full disk backup.
I'd love to use Arq, but I think I'd have to live in a Google Fiber city.
Amusingly, for the initial backup of my my home desktops I actually lugged them to work and plugged into our 10Gbit network. My homedirs are backed up nightly, but the delta is rarely over a a gig or two per machine. I have something like 7TB backed up over the course of a few years, a lot fo it on my pitiful 2-3mbit.
Well there's your problem. I've got a 10 Mbps upstream connection, so it never takes more than a few minutes to back things up.
