This month at SoCoSA we'll be covering BackupPC, a popular and very full featured open source backup system. BackupPC supports backup through SMB, Tar/gz over SSH or NFS, or rsync. The killer feature of BackupPC is file pooling, which allows identical files from different backups, or even different systems, to take up only the space of a single file on the backup server. This allows moderately priced backup servers to vastly increase the number of system they can backup, the retention period of backups, or both.
