Some issues not covered in the wiki are how each would be
implemented. i know
rdiff-backup and i assume backuppc would need to be ran by a user
sufficient privileges on each machine to read whats needed to be
what does this mean?
The list looks pretty nice. I've implemented a BackupPC setup at my
own company that is still in testing, but is already backing up ~10
servers (Fedora and CentOS machines) using rsync over ssh. In my
setup BackupPC runs as a special shell-less user whose passphrase-
less public key is added to /root/.ssh/authorized_keys on each host
that is backed up. So far I'm loving BackupPC. However, I haven't
seen any other solutions in action, so I can't say to much about
them. However, judging from the list and the homepages of these
solutions BackupPC does seem like a very easy to implement solution.
If it can deliver all requirements I'd say give BackupPC a whirl.
