If you can reliably count on having a second PC to use for downloading files and then an external drive or something to get them over to the PC you need to recover, then that simplifies the access issue from Rescue. Looking very briefly at P.Cloud, it seems that they only offer the typical access mechanisms, namely a browser-based interface and then a sync application you can download to the PC. If you only want to upload backups occasionally, using the browser interface for manual uploads may be acceptable. If you wanted to use the sync application though, you'd have to take some care in how you set it up. One option would be to have the folder that contains your "cloud cache" reside on the drive you're currently using for storing the images, then set that folder as the target for your image jobs. In that case, you'd still have image backups on your local disk since that folder caches what's in the cloud, but because they're in that specific folder, they would also get uploaded to the cloud automatically. But if you didn't do that, the problem is that you'd essentially have to retain 2 local copies of your image backups, one in your normal location and one in your "cloud cache" folder if you want to have backups in the cloud. You would also definitely want to make sure your "cloud cache" folder was NOT located on a partition being captured in your image jobs, since otherwise every image job of that partition would then contain all previous backups of that same partition that you were still retaining, which of course would drastically inflate the size of your backup jobs.
Otherwise, if you want easy replication to the cloud, you might want to look into services that provide access via API for this purpose, like Google Drive, Amazon S3, Box, and a few others. That way, you could something like Allway Sync to say, "Replicate this local folder that contains my backups to my cloud provider". That way, you wouldn't have to cache your entire cloud repository locally in order to facilitate synchronization, and if you used Allway Sync specifically, you could either keep those sync jobs manual to avoid the risk of accidental deletions being automatically replicated to the cloud, or you could run it on a schedule.
