I initially heard of Backupsy from WebHostingTalk, and was on the lookout for a backup solution, so thought I would give them a try.

When I initially signed up, I was using their Netherlands location.

A few weeks later, they announced their UK location, so I moved my setup into that site.

Setup
Setup of the initial OS is done via the Reinstall tab

You can choose one of the many available images to load onto your VPS.

Re-installing if you have an OS already on there is done via the same method.
