Linux Backup Server: Back up Linux Server over Network
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.
Native and Heterogeneous Backup for Linux Servers
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.
Options of Backup Software for Heterogeneous Environment
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.
Linux Backup Server: Principal Requirements
Good Linux server backup must run under a vast majority of Linux backup server distro types. You can easily adapt Handy Backup not only for Ubuntu/Debian, but also for Linux Mint, Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), OpenSUSE and commercial SUSE versions, Arch Linux, Mandriva, Scientific Linux, Slackware, Knoppix and many other distributives as the unified Linux backup tool.
Supporting Linux on Virtual Machines
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.
Working in Terminal
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.
Handy Backup as a Linux Backup System
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:
Linux Network Backup Software
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 8.4.2, built on September 19, 2022. 111 MB
The Server Network edition allows native and heterogeneous backup over the network, providing effective Linux server backup and recovery. Free 30-days trial version!
Joint Running of Linux Server Backup and Other Software
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.
