Backup tool for both local and remote files

'flexbackup' is a configurable and easy to use Perl-based backup tool, that can backup local files as well as remote machines (using ssh). It allows the backup itself to be made with afio, cpio, tar, dump, star, or pax. It can work with tape drives, or can easily archive to on-disk files.
