CDRX is a menu-based Perl script designed to help you use your CDRW with mkisofs and cdrecord to handle ISO creation, CDROM/CDRW device scans and setup, CDRW blanking, and CDRW burns. It is designed to supplant the need for an X-based CD burning utility, to provide features not found in other Unix CD burning programs, and to be easy for beginners to use.
dbackup is a disk-based client-server backup system for Linux or other UNIX systems. It works on the principle 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 or 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.
loop backup is a bash script for automatic and complete system backups with a large but simple configuration. Destination can be CDR(W), hard disk, tape, Samba, FTP or SCP (SSH). The backups include the configuration and data of the most-used applications/utilities/services on any GNU/Linux workstation or server. It has support for English and Spanish at the moment, with easy translation to other languages.
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.
CD-R/W discs can be written with a technique called packet or incremental writing. This allows transparent and buffer-underrun-free recording for CD recorders that support this method. No more mastering of .iso images; just mount your CD-ROM read/write and copy files directly to it.
Phrealon is a bootable Linux CD based on Slackware Linux 8.0, designed to allow the easy imaging of multiple workstations. It utilizes the updcast set of Linux tools to accomplish this. It provides an interface that allows users to select options from menus and autodetects most of the supported NICs.
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.
