I tend to think that will be targeting local cloud storage, for example 
ownCloud, in enterprise environments. I'm not sure something like S3 is 
very useful for direct backup storage over the Internet. A 1 TB backup 
over a 100 Mbps connection would take a minimum of 22+ hours, assuming 
maximum throughput and that S3 could actually sustain 12.5 MB/s.

For S3, copying via a script seems the best way to go.
