Can anyone tell be if there is an alternative to carbonite for ubuntu.

I love the idea of carbonite's "unlimited" automatic backup, can anyone help

I've never used Carbonite. But have you looked into Deja Dup? Which allows you to backup the files to Rackspace Files, a separate partition, disk drive, or even to Amazon Cloud? – Alan May 20 '11 at 17:55

Both Spideroak and Crashplan have a linux clients.
