linux default icondbackup Publisher's description

dbackup is a disk-based client-server backup system for Linux or other UNIX systems.

dbackup is a disk-based client-server backup system for Linux or other UNIX systems.

It works on the principal that disks are cheaper and more reliable than tapes.

Backups are started by cron probably on a daily basis by the client. The client backs up individual filesystems / directories with tar and sends the result to the server, which stores them in a simple tree-based directory structure.

Restores are trivial, either by using the supplied restore client, or by simply copying the appropriate tar files off the server and uncompressing them.

* Backup very large filesystems as long as you have the disk space
* Works with very large numbers of servers / filesystems
* No state is kept on the client, it’s all on the server
* Backup to multiple backup servers in round-robin
* Configuration can be global or per-server
* Authentication for client restores (optional)
* Supports optional gzip or bzip2 compression
* Supports client-side gpg encryption
* Trivial procedure for restores
* Daily / Full incremental backups
