Why

We rollout our linux systems automatically. We try not to configure third systems for backup, monitoring and other general services.

  • No central backup server: We don’t want to configure a backup set on a “central backup server” for each new node. Each new node pushes its own backup data to a given backup target.

  • We want to push data from a private network to target; a central backup server would not reach some clients without sattelite systems.

  • No agent needed.

  • Automatic backup of databases: A set of database backup scripts detects exsiting locally running database services and puts a compressed dump file per database scheme to a local backup directory.

  • We want to use a local encryption of all data to backup.
