Did you mean you want to run something yourself remotely to collect and store 
backups or do you want a service?  For the former case, look at backuppc 
(http://backuppc.sourceforge.net/ or the package in epel).  It can use rsync 
over ssh to collect the backups and uses compression and links duplicates to 
increase the history you can keep online.
