It is a challenging but worthy step in development of Handy Backup to support all sorts of the data safekeeping and restoration activity under OS Linux. Thus, Handy Backup sometimes can be the best of Linux backup solutions on the market.
Today, if you want to use the Handy Backup software under Linux, you have two viable options:
The native support of Linux and *nix-based systems (like different versions of BSD) may be significantly extended in future. However, the Handy Backup software is the proprietary system, with no open source code allowed.
Version 7.6.7, built on July 6, 2015. 50.5 MBBackup Software from Novosoft LLC.
599 USD per license.
To back up and restore all workstations of your network, you need to use the Network edition. Free 30-days trial version!
If you organize the workflow of data on your entire complex network and want the perfect tool for your Red Hat or Ubuntu backup, the Server Network edition provides you with a powerful solution. Just install workstation agents for all Linux-based computers in your network, configure it, and you may use the full spectrum of options listed below as the key features of this Linux backup solution.
All these operations are centralized and controlled from the one point, making it the perfect Linux backup tool for system administrators. The main software system in this model operates as the Linux backup server for all workstations in the local network.
The software, both in Linux- and Windows-based implementations, uses the deeply modified version of popular rsync algorithm, nowadays a de-facto standard of data synchronizing operations in the world of Linux.
Due to some optimization, the modified rsync algorithm and overall data exchanging strategy built around it, can grossly speed up the data transferring, adding more to the superior speed of job generally demonstrated by Handy Backup. This acceleration can be most visible in the typical tasks of differential and incremental backup, containing up to 80% of all the data safekeeping activity.
To see how Handy Backup can speed up the data exchange, we make a comparing test using the typical Windows-based workstation. Two tasks were performed; the first is copying the ten thousand of files 1,000-bytes sized, and the second is the transfer of one 1,49 Gb file (the size of a typical two-hours movie file compressed by most of standard Full HD codecs).
The table below contains the summary of both tests:
These parameters upgrades constantly, version after version, as no limits can be to perfection!
Also, the modified version of rsync used by the software uses the straightforward approach to processing the data directly, not bothering anyway both user and OS with any temporary files or directories. This method can significantly add to speed, stability and security of overall data exchange.
