Jungle Disk and the Amazon S3 service looks like it would do what you want.

Jungle Disk is not open source, through inexpensive ($20). It does store the data on S3 in a proprietary format (as I understand it).

S3sync is a Ruby script that can use the S3 service. Looks like a bit more work to use, but not that difficult. Not open source either, but free as in beer.

A HOWTO using s3sync: ... ng-s3sync/
