backup: dump vs tar-bzip/gzip
i'd like to backup a system with some VServers running. I thought of Amanda and Bacula, but temorarily rejected the idea, as i believed, that something simpler would do and it would also be helpful to start with the basics, ie the (1) dump utility or (2) tar-bzip/gzip. What's the positive and negative sides of these two? My main fear has to do with the fact, that (2) is something i use all the time, it may not have features of dump (like incremental backup), but is tried and tested, easier to use, etc, in contrast with (1). Suggestions?
