I would like to make backups of data I have from a remote server periodically (a few hundred GBs).
I was thinking of setting a Pi up, SSHing in to it, and SFTP'ing the data from the server to the Pi to back it up. The data would be saved to an external HDD connected to the Pi. I like the idea of uisng a Pi because I would be happy to leave it running 24/7 so I could make backups at any time.reversephonelookup.onl/ curated.onl/nba-reddit/
Would a Pi work well for this?
I was thinking the bottlenecks would be the Internet connection, the HDD, and the USB port. Would there be any other bottlenecks I haven't thought of that would make the Pi not great for handling downloads?
Thanks in advance. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
