Arkeia Network Backup is designed for organizations that require fast, easy-to-use, and affordable data protection. It backs up critical data to disk, tape, and cloud storage. Arkeia protects all major virtual platforms including VMware, Hyper-V, XenServer, and more than 200 physical platforms including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Netware, most UNIX flavors, and BSDs. The company’s source-side Progressive Deduplication technology helps users realize better performance at a lower cost by reducing data volumes. Arkeia’s deduplication is crucial to accelerating replication of on-premise backups to private or public clouds.
BackupSW is a backup and file transfer application. It can be used on a single computer or in networked environments across different platforms. Its capabilities include user profiles that capture file selections for common operations, different backup policies, fast and easy file transfers between different types of computers, batch and command line operation modes, filtering based on regular expressions, and advanced operations such as signal generation for mounting file systems.
Dar is a shell command that makes backup of a directory tree and files. Its features include splitting archives over several files, DVD, CD, ZIP, or floppies, compression, full or differential backups, strong encryption, proper saving and restoration of hard links, extended attributes, file forks, Door inodes, and sparse files, remote backup using pipes and external commands (such as ssh), and rearrangement of the "slices" of an existing archive. It can run commands between slices, before and after saving some defined files or directories (for a proper database backup, for example), and quickly retrieve individual files from differential and full backups. Several external GUIs exist as alternatives to its CLI interface, like kdar, DarGUI, SaraB, etc.
storeBackup is a backup utility that stores files on other disks. It's able to compress data, and recognize copying and moving of files and directories (deduplication), and unifies the advantages of traditional full and incremental backups. It can handle big image files with block-wise changes efficiently. Depending on its contents, every file is stored only once on disk. Tools for analyzing backup data and restoring are provided. Once archived, files are accessible by mounting file systems (locally, or via Samba or NFS). It is easy to install and configure. Additional features are backup consistency checking, offline backups, and replication of backups.
PsyncX allows you to backup either part or all of your hard drive. You can mirror your selected folder to a FireWire drive, a disk image, or a network drive (this feature doesn't seem to be working right now). In addition, psync will create a bootable drive if you mirror your entire harddrive. PsyncX allows you to schedule regular backups as well. (Note: your computer can't be asleep for this to work properly).
Defaults Manager is an editor for the User Defaults preferences database on Mac OS X. It allows you to easily view, edit, delete, and backup preferences, and can be used to view and change the preferences in almost any application. It is useful for developers that want to make sure their preferences are being stored and changed correctly, and can be used to unlock features that previously required the use of Terminal.
