Every night I backup up all virtual machines and containers, using Proxmox Backup Server — the backups gets synced to Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage using rclone crypt.

For off-site document backup I use Duplicacy, it encrypts, deduplicated, and uploads to Backblaze B2 as well.


The primary power source is a dedicated 15 A circuit — for the homelab rack and heat-pump. The basement circuit is used as the secondary source. Both inputs are protected with a Brennenstuhl Premium-Protect-Line 60 kA surge protector.
