Linux server backup for Disaster Recovery Plan in the Cloud

GNU/LINUX backup context in DRP mode

Alternative proposed by Nuabee on Linux machines

Contrary to Microsoft systems, GNU/LINUX operating systems don’t have “image” backup mecanisms like VSS for Windows. Most of the time, backups done on GNU/LINUX system are application backups (data base / website / folder). This is an inssue in a disaster recovery context, as the system has to be restarted

Nuabee for Linux use a complete backup of the operating system, implemented by the Relax-And-Recover program.
It enable the storage of the complete GNU/linux system in TAR archives, which are then sent to a file server. Combined with Nuabee Backup for Windows, it’s possible to save an entire GNU/Linux pool of hosts in the Cloud.

The architecture of ReaR (Relax and Recover) backup in Nuabee’s DRP context

In order to integrate Linux server backup in UCover, Nuabee’s DRP solution, the backup structure has to be a bit specific. Backups done through ReaR are exported on a NAS or an internal filer. Then, Nuabee Backup software encrypt and upload data to the Cloud on a regular basis.

ReaR Backup features

  • GNU/Linux system full backup
  • Generation of an automated rescue system ISO
  • Differentials backups to optimize bandwith
  • Backup retention management
  • Logs are sent to your storage container
