Unix, Xenix and ODT General FAQ
This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating
systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS,
or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open
There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on
this site: Search this site is the best
way to find anything.
There are a couple of categories here - products which are
mostly aimed at one or a small number of Unix machines, and those
which are aimed at enterprise-wide, multiplatform backup. The
following two lists are NOT meant to be all-inclusive, but merely a
sample of some of the better-known products.
First, the ones aimed at one or a few Unix machines:
Amanda Backup http://www.amanda.org open source
network backup program.
Bacula http://www.bacula.org, another open
source network backup program.
BackupEDGE (Microlite Corp., 2315 Mill Street,
Aliquippa, PA 15001-2228; firstname.lastname@example.org; (888) BKP-EDGE
or (724) 375-6711; http://www.microlite.com/)
BRU Tolis Group http://www.tolisgroup.com/)
Lone-Tar (Lone Star Software Inc., 13987 W. Annapolis
Court, Mt. Airy, MD 21771; email@example.com; (301) 829-1622 or
(800) LONE-TAR; http://www.cactus.com/)
Ctar (Unitrends Software Corp., 1601 Oak Street, Suite
201, Myrtle Beach, SC 29677; firstname.lastname@example.org; (800)
648-2827 or (803) 626-2878; http://www.unitrends.com/)
These products tend to be fast and robust, generally offer data
compression, and tend to be able to handle errors on the backup
media. Many also include, or can optionally be purchased with,
utilities to create automated emergency recovery diskettes which
are much friendlier and easier to use than the ones you can produce
with standard SCO utilities.
Now, a few for those with more ambitious backup plans ... this
section is under construction and hopefully I'll have some more
contact info shortly.
