scdbackup is a simplified CD/DVD backup program for Linux. It can back up large amounts of data on one or more media, with no special tools needed for reading the backup. It supports ISO9660 filesystems and afio archives. Its special features are automatic division of data into multiple volumes, verification of write success, incremental backups, a search and restore helper for large ISO9660 backups. CDs get written via cdrecord, wodim, cdrskin, or xorriso. DVDs and BDs get written via growisofs, cdrskin, or xorriso.
CryptBackup is an encrypted backup application for Linux desktop users. It allows even a layperson to backup their home directory (including the desktop) on an encrypted external device with just a few clicks. Even the setup is only to choose the external device (such as an external hard drive) and to set a password.
MySQLBackup is a script that allows you to make date-time stamped backups of individual MySQL databases. Each database backup is a gzip compressed SQL script that can be restored and imported via the mysql command line tool. The tables of each database being backed up are locked, preserving data integrity. While this does temporarily prevent writes to the tables, the impact is reduced by backing up each database separately. This script backs up all databases accessible to the mysql user that it is configured to use. That means this script is useful to the sysadmin as well as to regular users who wish to maintain backups of their own MySQL databases.
Tartarus is a backup script designed to make backups of dedicated servers easy. It employs a range of standard Unix tools to achieve this goal, to simplify disaster recovery even when only a minimal rescue system is available. Archives can be stored on-the-fly on FTP servers as well as in the local filesystem, while a plugin system allows adaption to a wide range of usage scenarios. The use of LVM snapshots and the creation of differential backups are also included, as is an expire script to remove older archives from an FTP site.
Bran is a backup server solution based on Bacula. It is a special Linux distribution to organize the backup center of an organization. It can create a server that is ready to use after a very simple install procedure. The server has a very simple user interface that relieves users of the burden of worrying about the implementation details of the backup process.
Hot Copy creates an instant point-in-time snapshot of any block device while the system is running without interrupting applications or requiring the use of LVM. As block level changes are made to the real device, hot copy makes a backup copy of the changed block. The changed blocks are efficiently stored in unused space on your hard disk. These stored changed blocks maintain a point-in-time snapshot and space is only needed when you make changes to the real device. You can even write to your snapshots.
pbackup is a small utility for backing up and restoring file permissions on GNU/Linux and compatible Unix-based systems. It enables you to store the current access permissions from any part of the file system to a local file. This file can later be used to restore modified access permissions if needed.
