Backups are started by cron probably on a daily basis by the client. The client backs up individual file systems / directories with tar and sends the result to the server, which stores them in a simple tree-based directory structure. you can also restore you back up by using the supplied restore client, or by simply copying the appropriate tar files off the server and uncompressing them.

  • Backup very large file systems as long as you have the disk space
  • Works with very large numbers of servers / file systems
