VPS/FTP backup space

I am looking for ftp space as cheap as possible for my digital photos, should my house burn down! Ultimately I want a VPS as cheap as possible.
Best I have found yet is http://spotvps.com/ their platinum package and I am currently running winscp to populate this.
The problem is that my digital photos currently sit at 32Gb and growing so I really need more like 100Gb for a little future proofing.
Any good suggestions?

Re: VPS/FTP backup space

I use rsync.net and have found them to be very reliable. As well as rsync there's loads of ways to access it, they also offer a geographically diverse backup plan, and support SVN as well as git for revision control if you're in to that sort of thing.
edit: I notice that it's a fair bit more expensive than spotvps, however a vps isn't as good as what they offer for backups. A cheap VPS is likely to run on single disks with little chance of recovery on failure, with sites like rsync.net your data is on proper filers with snapshots etc and much more redundancy.

s3fs might be another option.
