Arq is the real deal.

Arq is a simple Mac App that will let you back up anything to the dirt cheap Amazon Glacier service. Pricing for Glacier is a bit complex (you pay by exact usage), but for most use cases you will end up spending less than 1/10 of what you would pay for Dropbox or similar alternatives. Backing up to the pricier Amazon S3 is also an option.
I make products and run companies.
I've been using arq for about 2 months now. I push my backup on a server using sftp. I think it's the perfect complement to time machine on a local hard drive.

For windows: I'm a happy user of Cloudberry Desktop Backup (
). I use S3, but has support for Glacier and most of the other data providers.
