Box Backup is an FREE, completely automatic on-line backup system for UNIX.
Here are some key features of "Box Backup":
??? All backed up data is stored on the server in files on a filesystem; no tape or archive devices are used
??? The server is trusted only to make files available when they are required; all data is encrypted
??? A backup daemon runs on systems to be backed up, and copies encrypted data to the server when it notices changes
??? Only changes within files are sent to the server, just like rsync
??? Old versions of files on the server are stored as changes from the current version
??? Behaves like tape -- old versions and deleted files are available
??? Choice of backup behaviour, optimised for document or server backup
??? Designed to be easy and cheap to run a server. Portable implementation, and RAID implemented in userland for reliability without complex server setup or expensive hardware. (optional)
