"R1Soft's backups "don't put much of a load on the system and
incrementals are even faster," he said. For the sake of comparison,
Yu installed open source BackupPC to see which was faster, and it
took BackupPC three hours to back up what R1Soft did in 30 minutes.
And Yu found the Web interface so easy to use that he has yet to
read any documentation. Users can set up their own backups and do
their own restores.
"He also likes that R1Soft "works with most flavors of Linux and
Windows. We have a lot of different operating systems here, so this
is fairly important."
"Indeed, R1Soft supports Microsoft Windows, Volume Shadow Copy
Service (VSS) and SQL, Red Hat, Novell SUSE, Mandriva Linux,
Fedora, Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, Citrix XenServer and VMware."
