Create a backup server with Restore

Filed under
Software

Perhaps the number one reason why people neglect to back up their desktops is the lack of workable solution. It can be difficult to find a method configurable enough to suite everyone's needs. One promising answer may be Restore, an application for enterprise and data center backup for Windows, Mac OS X, and Unix/Linux systems. It is GPLv2-licensed and freely available to download as a set of Debian/Ubuntu packages, virtual machine, or 455MB installable live CD.

For testing purposes, I downloaded the installable live CD that boots a complete operating system featuring the Restore backup utility. The OS is based on Ubuntu and uses the Xfce desktop. You can install it to a hard drive using Ubuntu's familiar installer.

You manage Restore through a browser interface, which means you can run it over networks and the Internet. The management interface is polished and responsive.

GNOME and KDE

  • Refocus
    Sometimes all those GNOME programming projects are driving me crazy. [...] Note that for that last item, I would use LaTeXila of course, so if there are some regressions due to some library changes (you perfectly know which library in particular I mean), I’ll probably become aware of the regressions and fix them. Without any guarantees, I repeat. So if someone wants to take over LaTeXila maintenance, I would be more than happy. In the condition that I can still recognize my old pet project afterwards and is still mostly bug-free.
