backup (144)

AMANDA, the Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver, is a backup system that allows the administrator of a LAN to set up a single master backup server to back up multiple hosts to a single large capacity tape drive. AMANDA uses native dump and/or GNU tar facilities and can back up a large number of workstations running multiple versions of Unix. Recent versions also support SAMBA.
Anastasis , Heckert gnu.tiny.png
Anastasis is a key recovery system that allows the user to securely deposit shares of a core secret with an open set of escrow providers, to recover it if the secret is lost. The core secret itself is protected from the escrow providers by giving each provider only part of the information, and additionally by encrypting it with an identity-based key unknown to the providers.
Archive is a fully drag-and-drop multi-format archiver. Drag a directory onto it to create an archive; drag an archive onto it to extract to a directory. It can also compress and decompress streams (for example, you could drag a .gz file onto Archive and from Archive into your text editor). Archive can create .tgz, .tar.bz2, .zip, .jar and .tar archives and can extract all the above as well as .rar, .rpm, .cpio and .deb formats. It can compress and decompress files to and from .gz, .uue and .bz2 formats.
'Archmbox' parses regular BSD mailbox files and archives all messages older than a specified date. The date to identify if a message is old or not is specified with either a standard iso format date (yyy-mm-dd) or an offset in days. The program supports regular expression based archiving rules as well as recursion. Archmbox can also be used on a whole tree of mailboxes.
atool manages file archives (tar, tar+gzip, zip, etc). 'aunpack' extracts files from an archive, andt overcomes the dreaded "multiple files in archive root" problem by first extracting to a unique subdirectory, and then moving back the files if possible. aunpack also prevents local files from being overwritten by mistake. Other commands provided are apack (for creating archives), als (for listing files in archives), and acat (for extracting files to stdout).
Backup Manager
Backup Manager is a small and basic tool for generating archives. It is designed for those who don't want an obfuscated tool for making tarballs. It can make tar, tar.gz,, and zip archives. It can be run in a parallel mode with different configuration files. Archives are kept for a given number of days. Its upload system can use ftp or scp to transfer the generated archives to a list of remote hosts .Automatically burning archives to removable media such as CD or DVD is also possible. The configuration file is very simple and basic.
Backup Shell
'bksh' is a simple program designed to be a shell for SSH. It copies its input to a given backup file. Its goal is to allow administrators to create backup-only accounts. It works for either tape only or file & tape backups, and works as a shell so clients have very limited server access.
'backup2l' generates, maintains, and restores backups on a mountable file system. The main design goals are low maintenance effort, efficiency, transparency, and robustness. In a default installation, backups are created autonomously by a cron script. It supports hierarchical differential backups with a user- specified number of levels and backups per level. This means the number of archives that must be stored only increases logarithmically with the number of differential backups since the last full backup. Hence, small incremental backups can be generated at short intervals while time- and space-heavy full backups are only run as needed.
'Backuper' makes backups on CD-R or DVD-R media. It uses cdrtools or dvd +rw-tools and some standard *nix utilities and detects most failures and abnormal situations.
Backupninja allows you to coordinate system backup by dropping a few simple configuration files into /etc/backup.d/. Most programs you might use for making backups don't have their own configuration file format. Backupninja provides a centralized way to configure and schedule many different backup utilities. It allows for secure, remote, incremental filesytem backup (via rdiff-backup), compressed incremental data, backup system and hardware info, encrypted remote backups (via duplicity), safe backup of MySQL/PostgreSQL databases, subversion or trac repositories, burn CD/DVDs or create ISOs, incremental rsync with hardlinking.
