"Data backup and recovery is one of the most essential parts in administering computer networks. Up to this point, many system administrators have relied on a combination of shell scripts and dump to backup their system. Many administrators have already found from experience that this combination has limited functionality and often requires custom scripting to fit the needs of each individual."

"Last month, Computer Associates, Inc. asked us to review ARCserveIT v6.61 Advanced Edition for Linux. The initial installation was not complicated and each function executed as documented. The Advanced Edition for Linux has many interesting features. Perhaps the most interesting one is the Java interface. ARCserveIT requires apache and installs the Java control panel at (http://localhost/as6) It can be accessed locally or via a network. This makes ARCserveIT administration easy. ARCserveIT also can be access and controlled from the command line."

"The appearance, ease of use, and functionality of ARCserveIT were all excellent. In the two week testing period, ARCserveIT remained stable, executed all jobs, and logged all events. If you are looking for a better Linux backup solution, ARCserveIT may be what you need."
