Synbak :: Universal Backup System

Synbak is an application designed to unify several backup methods. Synbak provides a powerful reporting system and a very simple interface for configuration files.

Synbak is a wrapper for several existing backup programs suppling the end user with common method for configuration that will manage the execution logic for every single backup and will give detailed reports of backups result.
 
 
Synbak can make backups using:
  • RSync over ssh, rsync daemon, smb and cifs protocols (using internal automount functions)
  • Tar archives (tar, tar.gz and tar.bz2)
  • Tape devices (using multi loader changer tapes too)
  • LDAP databases
  • MySQL databases
  • Oracle databases
  • CD-RW/DVD-RW
  • Wget to mirror HTTP/FTP servers
 
Synbak can make reports using:
  • EMail
  • HTML pages
  • RSS feeds
 
Moreover, if you are a developer and want to contribute, the modular nature of synbak will allow you to easly write new backup methods, reports, and translations.
 
Please read the features list and look the screenshots to know what Synbak can do for you.
 
Currently official support is given to GNU/Linux Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora Core Distributions only...
 
Help us to improve the compatibility with others Linux and Unix Operating System testing synbak, reporting bugs and improving Synbak.
