I'm considering that topic too, and you are right the key, for me, is 
around the storage management. GlusterFS, like Ceph I think, provide the 
capability to "geo-replicate" (encrypted transfers) data and thus to 
achieve an off-site backup.

I would be curious if anyone have had setup another method.

Kind regards,
