Clonezilla is a partition or disk cloning tool similar to Symantec Ghost. It saves and restores only blocks in use on the hard drive if the file system is supported. For unsupported file systems, dd is used instead. It has been used to clone a 5 GB system to 40 clients in about 10 minutes.
storeBackup is a backup utility that stores files on other disks. It's able to compress data, and recognize copying and moving of files and directories (deduplication), and unifies the advantages of traditional full and incremental backups. It can handle big image files with block-wise changes efficiently. Depending on its contents, every file is stored only once on disk. Tools for analyzing backup data and restoring are provided. Once archived, files are accessible by mounting file systems (locally, or via Samba or NFS). It is easy to install and configure. Additional features are backup consistency checking, offline backups, and replication of backups.
@1 File Upload and Download Manager is a searchable flat text database manager for managing file uploading and downloading. It lets you define your own allowable file extensions and use your own icons. The default pre-defined extensions are pdf, zip, jpg, gif, png, doc, xls, mdb, ppt, txt, rm, mov, and wmv. File sizes and record dates are displayed in search results. The database can be categorized. The maximum file size allowed can be specified.
prsync provides a solution for backups that is easy to configure, simple to maintain, and based on rsync. You can can specify how often to backup (daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly) and how much is needed from each of these periods. Backups from a local computer to a remote computer, remote to local, and local to local are possible. prsync will also take care of the old backups.
Sshbak is very simple but powerful and secure remote backup utility. It performs a fast and comprehensible daily (usually) backup of multiple machines via remote SSH connections. The result is a simple set of tar+gzip files. It supports the backup of piped program output (allowing remote backup of mysqldump or pg_dumpall results), parallel backup of different machines, and more.
Mondo Rescue archives Linux and Linux/Windows systems to tapes, CDs, DVDs, USB devices, or ISO images that may be used to restore some or all of your OS and data in the event of catastrophic data loss, or for cloning a system. The emphasis is on stability and ease of use. Currently, ext2, ext3, ext4, (v)fat, minix, ReiserFS, XFS, and JFS filesystems are supported, as are RAID, DM, Multipath, and LVM.
atool is a script for managing file archives of various types (tar, tar+gzip, zip etc). The main command is aunpack, which extracts files from an archive. It overcomes the problem of extracting files from an archive without checking whether the files were located in a subdirectory or in the top directory of the archive, resulting in files scattered all over the place by first extracting to a new directory. If there was only a single file in the archive, that file is moved to the original directory. It also prevents local files from being overwritten by mistake. The other commands are apack for creating archives, als for listing files in archives, and acat for extracting files to standard out.
Many project are mirrored worldwide. Mirmon helps in monitoring these mirrors. In a concise graphic format, mirmon shows each site's history of the last two weeks, making it easy to spot stale or dead mirrors. Mirmon quietly probes a subset of the sites in a given list, writes the results in the "state" file, and generates a Web page with the results. The package includes a Perl module called Mirmon.pm; this makes it easy to write applications related to mirmon.
