Trouble there as I see it is how many different remote machines will you
have to access to get your data back?

I've just implemented a 120Gb disk in an EUR18 mobile rack from marx
computers. The rack is hot plugable (so long as the machine was booted
with the disk in) and a weekly rsync followed by a
pull-the-disk-and-bring-it-into-work is my domestic off-site backup
solution. Cost about EUR160.
Did something similar with one of our devel servers at work. 120Gb system
disk, 250Gb internal disk for backups, 250Gb USB external disk for weekly
mirror of internal backup disk, mondoarchive doing the nightly backups.
External disk cost ~EUR270 from marx.
