Backup Software___HELP!!!!


Hello I just bought the airlink101 model ANAS350 and would like to use it to backup my RedHat server running 7.3. Does anyone know of software that will allow me to backup to a network device or an FTP server?

Thanks!!!!!

tar (or gtar) may be the way you want to go. But, depending on what you want to do, how much space you have, etc., you may want something else.

One possibility might be rsync: http://www.linux.com/feature/117236

With tar, you could end up with a series of full backups at times of your choosing, and even incrementals. With rsync, you could be guaranteed of having everything duplicated on your san on a nightly basis fairly efficiently.

There are other options as well.

Check out the O'Reilly book "Backup & Recovery" by W. Curtis Preston. There is a matching web site at http://www.backupcentral.com/
