There is a huge difference between Borgbackup and Rsnapshot + Backuppc: Borgbackup is unable to pull data from remote hosts to a central location.
Its working model is based on Borgbackup running locally and storing data to a local filesystem.
New hypervisor hardware has been racked in our bay at Rocquencourt.

In the current (fairly time sensitive) situation, the most sensible option seems to be Azure Cool storage in the West Europe region, minding the exit cost of storing data there.
At least some of the batteries for PERC H800 adapters use part number KR174 and/or M164C.
Some information leads me to believe they could also be used with PERC H700 adapters.
I did some experiments with Letsencrypt but other things were more urgent during the September-October 2018 period and in the end a wildcard Digicert certificate was used again instead.
