I see many posts asking about what other lemmings are hosting, but I’m curious about your backups.

I’m using duplicity myself, but I’m considering switching to borgbackup when 2.0 is stable. I’ve had some problems with duplicity. Mainly the initial sync took incredibly long and once a few directories got corrupted (could not get decrypted by gpg anymore).

I run a daily incremental backup and send the encrypted diffs to a cloud storage box. I also use SyncThing to share some files between my phone and other devices, so those get picked up by duplicity on those devices.

All my servers use ZFS for data storage, they have VPN’s between each other (just /30 P2P’s). I use zfs-snapshot to take snapshots every 15 minutes and nightly jobs that do a ZFS send to dump everything to another machine with some storage.

Looking into moving from rsync to a similar setup. How do you handle deleting old snapshots when storage is full?
