Mike Heins : Snapback2

Snapback2 does backup of systems via ssh and rsync. It creates rolling "snapshots" based on hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly rotations.


You might think this would take up lots of space. However, snapback2 hard-links the files to create the images. If the file doesn't change, only a link is necessary, taking very little space. It is possible to create a complete yearly backup in just over 2x the actual storage space consumed by the image.
