So, I’m about to set up my first-ever NAS soon (already ordered 3x16TB HDDs ) based on a Synology system (420+)
I’m also pretty sure I want to use Wasabi as the (main) cloud backup since I like the fact that I can easily create buckets with different regions on the same account there (and the no-cost for egress)
What I’m still not sure is what would be the best practice in terms of the backup flow -
At least some of my important data would sit on my own desktop computer – and I would wanna use the NAS as a backup destination for it, but - I would also want the same data to be backed up to the cloud
It is my understanding that if I just backup (using duplicacy) from PC → NAS it already creates chunks at the destination, and then, if i try to backup (to the cloud) the chunks themselves using duplicacy i probably end up with something inefficient -
but - backing up separately to the two destinations also feels a bit weird - since it seems like a lot of duplicate work is being done (and a lot of unnecessary strain on the PC and its HDD’s)
Would the best practice be something like backing up to the primary destination (NAS) first using duplicacy, followed by a simple sync of the data into the cloud, from the NAS?
and then, is that what the copy task is for? and how does the copy differ from something like rclone 's copy - if at all?
