Back up Ubuntu files
Handy Backup / Features / Coming Soon / Ubuntu Backup
Ubuntu backup is one of the milestones we set for ourselves on the road to the ultimate cross-platform backup solution.
Why Ubuntu? Because it is cool. And powerful. And has a solid user base that is growing rapidly. Making backup plug-ins for Ubuntu is about the same difficulty as for any other Linux system, but testing and packaging is much easier – so we can finish the product faster.
Handy Backup for Ubuntu will be installed using a common Package Installer, just like any other application you can find in Software Center. It will have the same powerful architecture that we have in Windows version, including client-server model, plug-ins, licensing scheme, etc. And even more, it will be absolutely compatible with other versions – for example, you will be able to add Ubuntu Workstations to Handy Backup Server Network running in Windows environment.

On this page you can learn about the concept of Ubuntu backup, some technical details and current state of the project.
To understand our implementation of a cross-platform backup, let’s take a look at Handy Backup’s architecture. The software consists of several components, most important of which are called Server and Workstation:
Each Workstation may have its own set of plug-ins. For example, Handy Backup for Android allows working with SMS messages, call logs, etc. In our architecture, backing up SMS from phone to PC suggests that Server copies file AndroidWorkstation\SMS to a path like DesktopWorkstation\Computer\D\Backups.
Copying files, disk images and databases in a heterogeneous network
The first step of an upcoming solution will be a Handy Backup Ubuntu Workstation. This means that it will be used only as a part of the Server Network solution, with a Windows-based Server. Learn more about client-server backup...

Check out the Server Network edition - centralized backup solution that lets you protect up to 5 servers at once. Ubuntu workstations coming soon!
Our program has always been famous for its modular structure and extensibility capabilities. All components have very solid, well-established interfaces and can be developed separately: for example, a Workstation can be released without any plug-ins at all (though it doesn’t have much sense).
We decided to start with three backup plug-ins for Ubuntu:
If you’re not yet a user of Windows version of our software, we welcome you to download and try it right now – very soon it will be compatible with Ubuntu!
As it’s been said above, the first release will be Handy Backup Workstation optimized for Ubuntu. Current development progress is as follows:
Most likely, finishing the file system plug-in (Computer) will result in an immediate release of the first version of the Workstation. Then you will be able to back up your Ubuntu files as easily as Windows ones – with the Server Network edition of our software!
