The two Linux backup best practices include:
The first one urges you to write backup scripts on your own. Though affording high degree of customization, this approach demands constant maintaining of the scripts, as well as substantial knowledge to make and debug these scripts. Sometimes this approach becomes tedious.
Caveat: Scripts can also reduce the effectiveness in the performance, or even the security, for a whole company. If you quit the job, the one who comes after you will have a really hard time, presuming leaving the vital information unprotected while rewriting your scripts.
The second approach utilizes third-party solutions. While being proprietary and often non-free, these products present much better methods of data backup. The improvement in the performance time and in security can be quite noticeable.
