I had a big long message typed out and then lost it :P  The gist of it
was: S3 might work for you but it would not be a drop in solution,
rsync.net looks good based on their site and should be easy to set up
(I've looked it over pretty thoroughly before) but I don't know how well
their rates compare etc.
