Most dedicated hosting provider provides the backup service using NAS or FTP servers. These service providers will hook you to their redundant centralized storage array over private VLAN. However, it is your job to automate the backup procedure.
The main advantage of using FTP or NAS backup is a protection from data loss. You can also generate a shell script as per your hosting service providers setup."
