How are you backup your system?

Which backup system or software?
By network on NAS, usb disk, rsync, cifs/smb folders, manually bash script? VM snapshot?
Do you have a particular strategy for production environments?
Which type of backup? Incremental, full…
Please share your expertise and experience

rsync for /etc /var/www /var/log /var/lib/nethserver to another site every night

  • a weekly snapshot on DigitalOcean or VmWare.

Eventually, if the Backup Module would provide possibilities to use a SSH or SFTP, I’ll make a daily incremental backup + a full every week and keeping my snapshot too.

Open a new topic with such suggestion and try to describe how it should work FYI, mockup and specifications could be useful.


I would like to have a better choice for backup.

Why not imagine a panel of backup module to interoperate with Crash Plan or similar system.
or another module to backup to a dropbox or a webdav instance ( owncloud / icloud / google drive )
