I'm curious to know how well this works (economically and practically) at
various scales.  Would you be willing to share some (rough) details about
your cloud-based backups?  For example: How large is your baseline dataset?
 How large are the daily incremental snapshots?  What prices do you pay for
that amount of cloud-based storage?  Can the backend storage service
transfer data (in & out) as fast as your internet connection allows?

Thanks,
Chris
