"BackupEdge is a tar-based solution for data backup and recovery from Microlite. It features character- and GUI-based front ends that facilitate administration and interactive backup-and-restore operations. The latest edition of BackupEdge--version 01.01.08--includes improved support for Red Hat 7 and other Linux systems based on glib 2.1. BackupEdge offers affordable, reliable backup and disaster recovery--ideal for businesses with networked machines running Linux and Unix variants."

"BackupEdge is especially useful for system administrators who manage data backup and disaster recovery in an enterprise environment. The program supports standalone tape backup devices, tape changers and auto-loaders, and HP Tape Alert messages (on drives that support Tape Alert)."

"BackupEdge also supports network-based backup and restoration of data. Setting up a network backup is as easy as defining a remote tape drive in BackupEdge's configuration. Using a remote drive for data backup can help cut costs considerably, since you don't need to install a tape drive for each of your servers and administration can be performed from a single location."
