"Everybody needs to do backups. Nearly everyone who has ever worked with or owned a computer has heard the refrain, "Make sure you do a backup." So, why is it so hard to get people to do regular backups? Could the backup experience be all that painful? Take heart, gentle reader, because it doesn't have to be."

"In the world of Linux backup software, BRU is legendary and seems to have been around forever. BRU's only flaw, it seemed, had been its lack of large enterprise, network-based backup and recovery technology. BRU-Pro changes all of that. It's designed to backup and restore almost anything, from single-server architectures to multiple clients running a variety of operating systems, including Linux, AIX, UnixWare, HP-UX, Solaris, and others. Check the BRU Web site for details."

"Note that all this power does mean some changes for those who are used to the old BRU software. Whereas BRU could back up to pretty much any device you could write to, BRU-Pro is designed to write to SCSI tape drives only. This "only," however, does include a variety of devices, such as automated tape libraries with robotic arms and bar code readers."
