How Offsite Backups work:

An initial onsite full backup of the data is made and then copied to the Remote Backup Repository to a local Data Centre. Any changes to your daily data "deltas" are compressed and copied remotely over an encrypted tunnel to the Offsite Backup Server disk repository. The "deltas" are usually 5% of your data storage, so only minimal data is copied over your Internet link. Backups are kept on the disk repository for a total of 14 days before being overwritten. The client can elect to move the backups from the disk repository to tape media for a longer retention period.
