We should really add a Backup/Disaster Recovery application/utility of the year, it's been long overdue in my opinion. Backups are always a part of a setup, well, should be part of every setup. Here's a quick list of some applications I know of:

Amanda
MySQL-ZRM
Bacula
BackupPC
rsync/Grsync
dump
restore
cpio
DAR
tar
Ark (KDE Archiving Tool)
Mondo Rescue
Areca Backup
FlyBack (rsync based)

Could probably break them up into Single or Networked Systems as well. ;)

Backup Application of the Year sounds like a good addition for next year.

Me too. Partimage for now and then. rsnapshot (http://www.rsnapshot.org/) (based on rsync) for every hour, day or what you like. Great stuff.

Hey when d poll is goin to start....

jumico 01-01-2008 04:28 PM

I think there should be a non-linux distribution poll if there's time and if it would be easy.
Freebsd
openbsd
netbsd
solaris
darwin
etc.
I would come up with a better list but I'm only familiar with a few popular distributions.

I like the backup category and would vote for rsync.

Shouldn't this be sticky so people will be more likely to hit it first?

x-nc 01-02-2008 01:55 PM

I second this request
