I like to keep things simple.
I just create encrypted archives on the local disk with dar
and then push them remote server with rsync.

Dar encrypts and compresses the data, slices it up in nice
managable archive files, and keeps all extended attributes intact. I can
also create incremental backups. You could do the same with tar but it
would be a bit more complex.
