ComputerWorld: Linux gaining backup tool support

Legato Systems Inc. will
soon join Spectra
Logic Corp.
on the scant but growing list of backup vendors
offering Linux support.” “I think a lot of organizations are
evaluating use of Linux right now … but [Linux’s] backup
utilities aren’t sufficient,” said Dave Hill, an analyst at
Aberdeen Group Inc. in Boston.

Veritas Software Corp.
plans to announce Linux backup support by the middle of next year.
And Knox Software has been offering its Arkeia backup product
for Linux since last year.
