I use Tim Kay's aws script to do backups to S3.

Works well for my needs, which is just website files and mysql databases.

Not really sure exactly what you mean by "backing up a VPS" though.

Duplicity supports Amazon S3 storage among many others (local file storage, scp/ssh, ftp, rsync, HSI, WebDAV, Tahoe-LAFS)

I have setup the S3 Bucket as a mounted network drive in the VPS (Centos 5), then configured incremental backups in WHM (Web Host Manager) and used this mounted drive as destination.
