Linux backup server software allows automating either backup of physical Linux servers or Linux backup on virtual machines. Utilizing a Linux backup client, it places data from Linux backup to NAS, to a USB drive, to a cloud (e.g. Linux backup to Google Drive) etc. Handy Backup allows it all – and much more!
These are homogeneous (i.e. all computers in network utilize the same principal OS or even the same distro/version of this OS) or heterogeneous networks (with different operating systems running in the network). The second option requires a function for heterogeneous backup.
The necessary data-saving functions for heterogeneous networks include both using Linux server to backup Windows clients and backup Linux server to Windows client or storage. These two-way compatibility allows moving and even cloning data freely in heterogeneous systems.
Good Linux server backup must run under a vast majority of Linux backup server distro types, including Debian Linux and clones (Ubuntu, Mint), Red Hat Enterprise Linux (with Fedora and other RPM-based distros), SUSE Linux Enterprise Server with OpenSUSE, Oracle Linux and other.
The program for Linux server backup and restore can also take snapshots from Linux-based virtual machines including distros installed on VMware or VirtualBox, virtual Linux with kernel (Linux KVM) etc. Handy Backup allows both “internal” backup and “external” snapshots of virtual machines.
Finally, a good Linux server backup program must work effectively in different shell commands and files, much like Linux rsync backup. A Linux backup client must contain a healthy set of command-line options allowing flexible control for all software functions just from a shell.
Newest versions of Handy Backup have a native support for any Linux central backup server, allowing running backup tasks from a command shell or using an advanced GUI to control all aspects of backup tasks. As Linux backup software, Handy Backup provides some advantages including:
In addition to making Linux server backup and restore, Handy Backup allows saving data from different Linux workstations, either directly or via the network. The latter option also supports a heterogeneous backup technique, allowing using Linux backup server and Windows client over the network.
Version 7.8.7, built on 2 December, 2016. 65.0 MBBackup Software from Novosoft LLC.
569 USD per license.
The Server Network edition allows native and heterogeneous backup over the network, providing effective Linux server backup and recovery. Free 30-days trial version!
Handy Backup contains both a shell-like interface allowing scripting its execution as a typical external program and an internal option allowing running commands before and/or after a particular task. This is useful, for example, for making Linux backup deduplication with an external tool.
