Backupninja allows you to coordinate system backup by dropping a few simple configuration files into /etc/backup.d/. Most programs you might use for making backups don't have their own configuration file format. Backupninja provides a centralized way to configure and schedule many different backup utilities.
RVM is an archive manager that uses rsync to manage backups of multiple clients across multiple logical partitions (vaults). It has some features that some other rsync-based backup schemes lack, such as being written in C++, needing no scripts or other programs than rsync and any binaries on which rsync depends (such as SSH), the ability to manage multiple instances of rsync connections to separate clients in parallel, the ability to use multiple logical partitions (vaults) in a configurable fashion for purporses of redundancy and added reliability, and the use of hard links for files that have not changed from one archive to the next.
DiscSpan is a tool that will take that a large directory full of files and automatically burn a series of DVDs to near capacity, without the need or hassle of creating individual ISOs or moving files around. It is geared more towards smaller files such as music and photos, as it cannot span a file across multiple discs. It prompts for the directory you'd like to back up, the device to use to burn, and the speed at which to burn. It analyzes the files and calculates how many DVDs are needed, while making sure no files are greater than the size of a DVD.
NASLite is a Network Attached Storage (NAS) server operating system designed to transform a basic computer into a dedicated file server. Utilizing highly optimized versions of Samba, uCLibc, BusyBox, and various other Linux tools, it provides SMB/CIFS, FTP, or NFS filesystem support. It accommodates multiple client OSes: Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. NASLite offers SMART disk monitoring and large file support, and is incredibly easy to install and administer.
Dkopp is a program for copying or backing up disk files to DVD or BD (Blu-ray). Full or incremental backups can be made, with full or incremental media verification. Dkopp uses a GUI to navigate through directories to select or de-select files or directories at any level. Backup jobs can be saved for recurring use. New, deleted, and updated files are handled automatically, without re-editing the backup job. An incremental backup updates the same media used for a prior full backup. A GUI restore function is also provided. Differences between disk and DVD/BD can be reported in total, by directory and by file.
KBackup is a program that lets you back up any directories or files. It uses an easy-to-use directory tree to select the things to back up. The program was designed to be very simple to use so that it can be used by those who are not computer experts. The storage format is the well known tar format, compressed with bzip2 or gzip. It also includes German, French, Italian, and Russian translations for the user interface and English and German translations of the handbook.
MT-write is a binary patch for multi-threaded writing. It comes in the form of a shared object that can be preloaded to programs like tar to make their write operations multi-threaded. Multi-threaded writing can improve performance on RAM based filesystems and highly scalable filesystems with multiple spindles.
make_cd_label is a script that helps create stickers for CDs. It is intended to be integrated with your backup scripts, but can also make stickers for audio CDs using CDDB and disc-cover. The output is an XML file that can be read into glabels and then edited or printed. It uses Memorex or Avery CD label stickers.
