DIASER is a cloud storage class combined geo-data replication, long-term archive system, and WAN vault application. Manage long term mixed data archives generated by existing backup software. Ensure availability using commodity hardware. Retain administrative and financial control. It combines a disk-based backup volume management system and triple redundancy with a storage architecture designed to structure months to years of long term sustainable archiving space. It is a quick and low-cost way to make an environment more robust by backing up data in multiple places. This replication also provides fast retrieval of archived data from all node hosting locations. A Perl installer creates the system. Nodes can be dedicated to storage or used for existing services over unused bandwidth. DIASER works in user space over SSH.
Redo Backup and Recovery is an extremely easy point-and-click rescue live CD with a suite of tools for system backup and recovery, partition editing, deleted file recovery, drive management, data protection, and more. The backup tool stores an image of the entire hard drive, so recovery from viruses, malware, or disc failures takes minutes. It boots from a CD or USB drive. It automatically locates local drives, USB drives, and network-shared drives to make backup storage and retrieval as simple as possible for anyone. The menu-driven GUI includes a Web browser for downloading drivers and a terminal with advanced command line tools.
Salvare (from the Latin "to rescue") is a small Linux distribution designed for small, credit-card sized CDs which typically hold around 34MB. More Linux than tomsrtbt but less than Knoppix, it aims to provide a useful workstation as well as a rescue disk. In addition to providing a rescue environment similart to tomsrtbt, it adds OpenSSH, a graphical and text mode Web browser (Links), security tools such as chkrootkit, nmap, and tcpdump, the ability to apt-get install additional software from Debian into tmpfs, the ability to run entirely from RAM, and much more. It's also customizable using a simple source-code based package management system.
SystemImager automates the installation of Linux to masses of similar machines. Software distribution, configuration, and operating system updates are made easy, including updates from one Linux release to another. It can also be used for content distribution on Web servers. It is most useful in environments with large numbers of identical machines. Some typical environments include Internet server farms, high performance clusters, computer labs, and corporate desktop environments where all workstations have the same basic hardware configuration.
Archive2iso takes a directory tree and randomizes the files in the tree to stripe the files across several ISO files that can be archived or burned off to a CD. The ISO files are generated by calling the CDiso.pm module. It reads an array generated by an INCLUDE LIST so the ISO file can be made with mkisofs. The intended use is to stripe files across multiple CD/DVD randomly so if one disc is damaged all the files that were in the same directory will not be lost since files are spread across multiple disks. The actual files themselves are not split; all files remain in their original state.
