SRPT is a SCSI RDMA Protocol (SRP) target implementation on top of SCST, a mid-level SCSI target subsystem for the Linux kernel. This software makes it possible for remote systems to access local storage over an InfiniBand network. This storage protocol target implementation offers a higher bandwidth and a lower latency than any other storage protocol target implementation available for Linux.
sfre (system flight recorder editor) is a script that wraps a text editor or any arbitrary command and implements logging, file locking, and change tracking for the command executed. It is meant for helping system administrators manage a system in tandem without interfering with each other.
rsync-mirror is used to backup local directories to another location on the local machine or to a remote machine. As the name suggests, it uses rsync for data transfer so it should be pretty efficient. It does not support any nifty backup features like incremental backups; all it does is mirror a directory to another location. To ease the task of creating backups, rsync-mirror takes care of managing the destination site of the backup. In case the target path needs to be mounted, rsync-mirror does so before backup and unmounts it afterwards.
BinBackup is a tool intended to efficiently back up a directory to a set of size-limited media like CD-Rs or DVD-Rs. It's goal is to distribute the contents of a directory to a set of media while using the space available on these media as best as possible, minimizing the number of media required for a backup. To do this, BinBackup uses a bin packing algorithm to decide how to partition the contents of a directory and where to put them.
Deduplicator is a simple and efficient data deduplicator that works by hard linking files that have the same content. It is ideal for reducing the size of backups. It can save and restore intermediate results, so you can run it in a few short intervals, and allows you to review changes before they are committed to disk.
K9Copy facilitates several methods for backing up a DVD. The software enables direct backup of a single layer DVD-5, provided the user's computer has a DVD recorder. Likewise, direct backup of a dual layer DVD-9 is possible with a dual layer DVD recorder. K9Copy is also able to fit the contents of a dual layer DVD-9 onto a single layer DVD-5. The interface allows a user to explicitly retain or discard any content from the original disc such as video titles, audio tracks, subtitles, and the DVD menu. All content selected for backup is compressed to a configurable target size (4400 MB by default) and stored on the user's hard drive as either an ISO image file or a DVD VIDEO_TS folder. K9Copy can either transfer the backup data to blank DVD±R media or utilize external DVD authoring software such as K3b for this task. Furthermore, an ISO image file produced by K9Copy can be recorded to DVD by any software on any platform capable of recording ISO images to disc. It can also back up a DVD to a video file (such as MPEG-4).
