VBackup - A modular backup utility¶
vbackup is an extensible CLI backup tool. Ultimately it is a collection of scripts that perform backup of systems. It is based on bash and should support most of the unices out there (if not then please report it as a bug).
From a user’s point of view, vbackup simplifies the backup process by using just a config file for everything that otherwise would require a custom made script.
Vbackup can backup:
- Postgresql databases
- MySQL databases
- Filesystems using GNU tar
- XFS filesystems using xfsdump
- dpkg and RPM databases
- MBR, Partition tables, MD and LVM information
- OpenLDAP database
The backup procedure is completely customizable and extendable.
vbackup supports multiple backup strategies and each one can supports multiple levels. For example, one can have a backup strategy for filesystem backups and another for VM backups or for testing
