    As D0s_0n said, this is something we are really looking forward, but it's very unlikely that any steps will be taken further in this direction until after the release of ZeXtras Suite 2.0, which will feature a completely rewritten and optimized ZxBackup module - no, no ETA yet...

    I am more looking for off server backup to be the primary backup. hmm, that stinks.

    Hello MACscr!

    As previously stated in this thread, it's possible to have an offsite backup by using either a remote filesystem (e.g. NFS) or a filesystem client like sshfs...

    I would like to use this thread to second the request for an automatic external backup scheme integrated in zextras.
    I am also using a script at the moment, but an official supported method (manageable through UI) would be a great help.
