In reference to your questions:
1) Is rustic available in Fedora? Is it FOSS?
Secure: Encryption with AES-256 in counter mode and authenticating it using
Efficient: Data deduplication
Free: Is licensed under the BSD 2-Clause License and actively developed on GitHub.
The easiest way to get restic is the pre-compiled binary on the GitHub page. So you
don't even have to install it. Just run the executable.
2) Is BackBlaze a popular storage option nowadays? Is there something distinguishing
BackBlaze is becoming popular due to it's free B2 cloud storage. ( Cloud storage
that's astonishingly easy and low-cost. 500 million GB stored & over 25 billion
files recovered (and counting))
The first 10 GB of storage are absolutely free.
Can you compare this to duplicity/Amazon S3, which we covered in July 2017?
To me one of the biggest differences is Amazon S3 only gives you a free trial for 1 year
and that even has a limitation of only 5 GB. As I've previously stated, the first 10
GB of cloud storage with B2 is absolutely free forever.
After the 1st 10 GB, the pricing per GB is only $0.005 while Amazon S3 is $0.021 per GB
which is 320% more. restic is a newer application that is very active on GitHub.
