If you have distinct save file objects or other objects on the Data Domain, you can definitely send them up to S3, however you'll have to come up with a process to do the S3 transfers.
Your remote shouldn't need to be i-specific. However you just need to test it regularly and make sure to check the hashes on the remote and local files after transfer to make sure nothing got lost in transit.
For the record, you can probably do some of this type of transfer directly from IBMi with Java, Python and other languages as well.

I think you best solution is to replicate from the DataDomain. If you have a HA site, maybe consider a second DataDomain there to replicate media to. The DataDomain also supports a Cloud tier so you could replicate to the cloud directly from the DataDomain, or as Larry pointed out, find a Cloud provide that can act as a replication partner to your DataDomain.

Subject: Duplicating backup to Amazon S3
We currently do backups to a Data Domain VTL using BRMS. Our weekly backup we duplicate to physical tape using the DUPMEDBRM command. Our management would like to get rid of the physical tape and wondered if we could duplicate the backup to Amazon S3 or another cloud storage option. I assume this is possible. I ran across the "Cloud Storage Solutions for I" product. I did notice the limitation of 2TB per day. I guess it would also depend on our internet connection. Is that the product we would need to do this? Are there other options? Currently, I'm not sure how big our backup is. I'll check into that. We are on 7.3 and up to date on PTF's as of July this year. TIA
