Can I backup the TC to the cloud (i.e. make an online backup of the data on the TC)?

I would like to follow Peter Krogh’s recommendation of keeping 3 copies of important files, a primary and two back-ups, with one of the back-ups being offsite. (i.e. The 3-2-1 Rule) Can I backup all my MACs to the TC and then backup the TC to online backup site?

    You can. However, copies of backups may be inaccurate and are not recommended.

    Keep in mind that a Time Machine backup is twice the size of all the data, at least some of which was not the original, anyway.
