Remote backends for incremental Linux backup software

One of the Arch wiki maintainers thought it was “useless bloat” to add information about which remote backends are supported by various Linux backup programs on the Arch wiki, and reverted my contribution. Well, I don’t think so, as I did the research because I needed to know. I don’t want it to be lost, I’ll post what I learned here.

P.S. This is my first negative experience in the Arch community; I guess I should be happy it has been only positives for such a long time.
