DarGUI is a graphical frontend for the Disk ARchiving utility (DAR) that aims to make it easier and quicker to perform common backup tasks using DAR. It uses the GTK+ library, which is installed on most Linux distributions, so usually the only additional dependency is DAR. DarGUI aims to complement and enhance the command line features of DAR rather than conceal them, and to help users to learn how DAR works so that they can use it from the command line when necessary. It is written in Pascal using FreePascal and the Lazarus IDE.
DragonDisk is a powerful file manager for S3 compatible cloud storage services, such as Amazon S3 and Google Cloud Storage. It allows you to back up, share, and organize your data thanks to an intuitive interface. Features include multiple windows; copy / move between Amazon S3 accounts; a multi-threaded HTTP/HTTPS engine; drag and drop; rename files and folders; filename filters; BiTorrent, time limited, and signed URLs; client side encryption; a metadata editor; ACL inheritance; detailed operations logs; and support for versioning.
Zmanda Recovery Manager (ZRM) for MySQL simplifies life of a database administrator who needs an easy to use yet flexible and robust backup and recovery solution for MySQL server. With ZRM for MySQL, you can schedule full and incremental logical or raw backups of your local or remote MySQL database, perform a backup that is the best match for your storage engine and your MySQL configuration, get encrypted and compressed backups, get email notification about the status of your backups (including RSS feeds), monitor and get backup reports, and recover a database easily to any point in time or to any particular transaction.
Manent is an algorithmically strong backup and archival program. It features efficient backup to anything that looks like storage. Currently it supports plain filesystems ("directories"), FTP, and SFTP. Planned are Amazon S3, optical disks, and email (SMTP and IMAP). It can work (making progress towards finishing a backup) over a slow and unreliable network. It can offer online access to the contents of the backup. Backed up storage is completely encrypted. Backup is incremental, including changed parts of large files. Moved, renamed, and duplicate files will not require additional storage. Several computers can use the same storage for backup, automatically sharing data. Both very large and very small files are supported efficiently. Manent does not rely on timestamps of the remote system to detect changes.
afbackup is a client-server backup system allowing many workstations to backup to a central server either simultaneously or serially. Backups can be started remotely from the server or via cron jobs on the the clients. Any streaming device, including a drive partition acting as a "virtual" tape changer, can be used for storing data. Autochangers can be used, if an appropriate auxiliary program, such as mtx or stctl, is available and working. afbackup has been tested on Linux, AIX, IRIX, FreeBSD, Digital Unix (OSF1), Solaris and HP-UX. The clientside has also been tested on SunOS and OpenBSD.
The ECLiPt Mirroring Tool is a full featured FTP mirror script written in Python. It supports nice config files, many features for controlling the mirror (include, exclude of files, special watermarks for deleting files, download just the latest version of some program), as well as producing nice HTML output.
zrep provides an easy-to-use program to manage zfs filesystem replication and failover. No configuration files are required. The program is developed under Solaris, but may work with any up to date zfs implementation. The executable is a single script. Initialization does a full data copy, but subsequent syncs are incrementals. It uses internal locking to make sure there is no danger of overlap if you just shove it in cron to run every minute. Design target is more "near-time replication", since the sync can be run every minute or more. However, it could conceivably be used for "backup" purposes as well.
