Description - Plan/B For Linux

Plan/B is a network aware file backup system specifically designed to make the backup of files from multiple machines to a variety of devices simple. The system includes features such as comprehensive reporting, the ability to use CDROM (and soon DVD) drives across the network and centralised management. Plan/B can be deployed on Windows and Linux systems. General Backup anything, to anywhere: You can use any kind of device that Plan/B knows about (currently CDROM, Local disk, Windows Network share, FTP device) as either a source or destination. There is no limitation (as there is in DataArmour). Incremental mode Copy only what has changed, saving bandwith and time. Multiple sources, multiple Destinations: A backup may source it`s files from multiple machines and devices. The destinations for a backup job can also be any number of machines or devices. Thus it is now easy to have a single set of files (documents, code or other important assets) copied to more than one location using a single job. No need to clone a job anymore! Multi-Platform: As the system is written in Java, it will work with any machine for which there is a VM (this is true for the backup server and agents). The administration console can be run on either a Linux or Windows machine (when SWT, the GUI framework used for the console matures on OSX, the console will be able to run on that Mac as well) Volume spanning: If any removable destination is out of space, then it is possible to request the next volume during the backup Process. A good example of this is backup to multiple CD`s. Plan/B supports both the spanning of single files across multiple media, and also the saving of complete files across different media. In the first case, a large file can be split across two volumes. In the second case, only complete files are written to any volume (obviously, if the file is larger than the size of the volume, it will have to be split up).
