Backup into Cloud
There are quite many free and commercial cloud storages at the day where user could keep their backup. But many storages wouldn't offer FTP access. It may be helpful if Plesk could transparently upload backups into a customer's Dropbox, Amazon or Azure account.
Dropbox backup for Plesk 12 http://ext.plesk.com/packages/9f3b75b3-d04d-44fe-a8fa-7e2b1635c2e1-dropbox-backup

Cloud storage needs to be integrated into the backup manager if only because the backups need to obey the Plesk backup configuration for everything from schedule to IO/CPU reduction to Incremental backups.
The current Dropbox extension is a joke. All it does is full backups and destroys the server's IO while in use *because* it doesn't obey any of the rest of Plesk's backup options.

I agree. Amazon drive is best option, so I wait a solutions to use as backup in plesk

We'll soon publish a solution for AWS. Stay tuned.
Is there anyone of the Plesk team aware of this? The original forum post doesn't even exist anymore. And as backups are a VERY important part of a hosting solution, only offering FTP and Dropbox is insufficient in my opinion.
Please Plesk, at least drop in some Feedback here.

+1 for AWS Glacier, S3
+1 Backup to Azure too
So far i've been using S3FS to be able to make backups to Amazon S3 so i whenever i need to update i have to change the backup dir to the default one, update and then change it back to Amazon S3. I 've been using Cpanen with Backup to Amazon S3 and make me feel safe that my backups are stored in a remote location plus it's super easy to work with.

+1 for Amazon Glacier / Google Nearline / Backblaze B2 / OVH hubiC for backup!
Dropbox really isn't suitable for professional solutions (not to mention their exorbitant pricing if just used for backup storage). I've been using Plesk for years and generally like but this has been a serious shortcoming.

Amazon cloud its cheap!

As suggestion, yes but a complete server backup is better be stored on a dropbox instead of a single user :)
Dropbox is only for users, we need some professional storage like AWS or Google Storage.
I'd like to suggest including onedrive in the mix too
Steven Church commented
This feature +1 please
The ability to do DropBox backups is silly, they are seriously over priced for storage.

An extension wich can backup to open stack, like ovh object storage, would be a great plus. It begin to be a standard for cloud storage. The extension must split the backup files like FTP does. I use it now with some trcks but it cause some problems with files bigger than 5 GB and actually my object storage is like a local storage so i can't split files.
