Hi would you guys suggest that I ask my webhost to install Jungledisk so that my backups would be stored to Amazon S3 as well? Do you guys know a better solution?
Thanks in advace!

So far I'm really liking jungle disk - I'm just now checking out their server version but I think we will be rolling it out here.
If we decided to move forward with jungledisk in a timely manner I'll update this.
I am using JungleDisk on more than a dozen servers pushing changes to hosted files off-site nightly. We also do local backups for fast recovery if a single server fails. The thing with any Internet-based backup solution will be the time required to restore files. Some services will put your data on a disk and mail it to you, but JungleDisk is not (as of this writing) in that category. Use it for disaster recovery and a last-ditch way to get your files back, but don't rely on it as your primary backup as restore times will be long if you're pushing a lot of files around.
