got it- thanks for the clarification, giancarlo!

i should note that backupsy (i promise i'm not paid by them) gives you
root access to a VM instance with whatever distro you choose (running
Arch on mine for the personal one!), so it's not specific to borg- it
can be rsnapshot, backuppc, bacula, plain ol' rsync, whatever. the
primary point i wanted to make was the pricing/storage factor.

excited to see what y'all end up going with!
