rear - Relax-and-Recover is a Linux disaster recovery and system migration tool
Relax-and-Recover is the leading Open Source disaster recovery and system
migration solution. It comprises of a modular
frame-work and ready-to-go workflows for many common situations to produce
a bootable image and restore from backup using this image. As a benefit,
it allows to restore to different hardware and can therefore be used as
a migration tool as well.
Currently Relax-and-Recover supports various boot media (incl. ISO, PXE,
OBDR tape, USB or eSATA storage), a variety of network protocols (incl.
sftp, ftp, http, nfs, cifs) as well as a multitude of backup strategies
(incl. IBM TSM, HP DataProtector, Symantec NetBackup, EMC NetWorker,
Bacula, Bareos, rsync).
Relax-and-Recover was designed to be easy to set up, requires no maintenance
and is there to assist when disaster strikes. Its setup-and-forget nature
removes any excuse for not having a disaster recovery solution implemented.
