1. afbackup

It is essentially a client-server backup system, in which the workstations backup the central server, either simultaneously or serially. The user can create archives, extract them or list up their contents. The free to download backup tool can be managed remotely from the central administrative host or through the cron-jobs on the clients. The data can be written on it using any streaming device - normally with a tape device. The backups are written sequentially allowing easier access to data. Most importantly, afbackup can be set for emergency recovery on different catastrophe levels.
