[ Thanks to Benjamin D. Thomas for this link. ]

"This document is a review of the Arkeia backup software combined with the Ecrix rakpak dual 66G drive, discussion of the features, security, usage, documentation, and support."

"Knox Software, Inc. of Burlingame California has an excellent client/server backup product called Arkeia. Is was released in two versions, the professional version, and the free. Both can be downloaded from Arkeia's website: http://www.arkeia.com/download.html. It was designed to serve as a backup solution for administrators who have to manage large-scale networks that consist of many platforms. It can backup any Linux or Windows based server or client onto a single centralized server. This enables an administrator to more efficiently manage/schedule backups, data archival, and system recovery...."

"Combined with a Guardian Digital Linux Lockbox 2200 , and a VXA rakPak, Arkeia works at amazing speeds. Knox Software claims that Arkeia delivers speeds that are up to 200-300% faster than rival software. I can not confirm this. However, it did push the network to its fullest potential."
