Initial Release of SHBackup

Category: Ubuntu

I am glad to announce the initial release of SHBackup. It is a python application that allows you to easily backup so called root or dedicated servers. It supports logical volumes, mysql and file/directory backup to a ftp site or rsync host. Currently it only can perform full backups but comes with a simple rotation mechanism and encryption with GnuPG.

Personally I use it for some remotely hosted servers which come with a lot of ftp backup space. Furthermore the rsync feature keeps my xen based fallback systems in sync.

You can get more information and a sample configuration on the homepage. Packages and source code can be downloaded here.
