i-2-S3 is a strategic save/restore utility for the IBM i ®. Using a set of commands that mimic the IBM i/OS save/restore commands, i-2-S3 lets you create backups and store them at Amazon's Simple Storage Service (S3). All you need is an internet connection and an account with Amazon. Amazon S3 is a VERY inexpensive alternative for tapes, tape drives and all that goes with them. Backups can be encrypted before being sent and decrypted automatically during restore.
