    Duplicati demands the use of a 3rd party online storage service. Borg Backup does not.

    While this provides for "off site" backup, it also means your data is in lonesome else's hands, thus adding additional security concerns. Also, most such services have subscription fees that can become costly depending upon the amount of data to be stored.
