bdmn is client/server-oriented backup system. The daemon runs on the machine being backed up, and the client runs on the machine that stores the backup. It is very simple, but very fast. It only uses tar, gzip, uuencode, and Perl, so it is portable to many operating systems. It includes a very simple access control system for itself.
KBACKUP is intended for handling of backups no matter whether they reside on disk or tape or even in files. As most other backup programs available today are either confusing the user with lots of long command line options, or user friendly but not powerful at all, the aim behind writing KBACKUP was to provide a user friendly yet powerful backup program. It is also intended to be kept compatible to existing and well proven archive formats, so you can restore your archives even if you should not have KBACKUP around anymore.
MEEP takes a "versioned" disk to disk backup. "Versioned" means that in each backup, unchanged files are hardlinks to the previous backup version, hence typically at least 90% space is saved. Source directories can be anything accepted by rsync, and the target must be a local filesystem directory. The word MEEP is an abbreviation of Mobile Enterprise Enabled Professional backup, none of which MEEP is. For a more polished implementation of the same idea, see the rsnapshot project.
The rPath Appliance Agent (rAA) is an extensible application framework for the administration of appliance devices through a Web-based user interface. The framework is comprised of individual component plugins which offer specialized functionality, such as a message log interface, user account preferences, system updates, and entitlement management capabilities. You can also develop and add plugins to the rAA framework, extending capabilities and functionality for your specific requirements.
Ftwalk is a high level script programming language, very similar to awk, but greatly extended to include a richer type system, object-oriented features, 300+ built-in functions, extensibility through dynamic libraries, etc., which makes it roughly comparable to languages like Perl. It does file tree searches, and was originally used to implement selective redundant copy backup stores. It can be run interactively as a calculator.
SnapSource is a utility written in Perl to automatically and periodically take a snapshot (incremental backup) of your source code and display the modifications in a 2-column (original and modified) format similar to that of cervisia. Changes, additions, and deletions are displayed in different colors, customizable per user preference. It is not another CVS, and it is not a front-end to CVS, but it is supposed to be used in between CVS commits.
dmzBackup is a program for backing up data in a heterogeneous DMZ network. It features disk-to-disk backup of remote/local host data, data encryption, multiple simultaneous data flows, error logs and email reporting, a search tool for locating files in a backup, a compressed index, host timestamps for incremental backups, human readable journal logs, host based configuration files, command-line arguments for interactive backups, client side compression, and unlimited (remote) backup clients for one backup host.
