    Hi Aaron, Is it possible to take the back up to a NFS mount using BackupPC?

    Hi Aaron

    Great article.

    We have just launched a new product called backup Bird (https://www.backupbird.com) for server backup. Have you that?

    It backups files and databases to external locations

    I agree with Philipp Storz, abd was irritated that BURP was not included in your list. Burp is free, open source, client/server backup that does compression and deduplication, uses the rsync libs for efficiency, yet is far easier to set up and configure than some of the other systems you list. It has clients for all of the usual suspects.

    Hello Aaron, regarding Bareos, you write:

    “The basic functionalities are free but payment is required to use professional backup features.”

    This is not true. All functionalities of Bareos are freely available, it is a true open source software.

    It has no part that is not available, and there is also only one product.

    The payment is only required to get access to up-to date binaries and to get support,
    the sourcecode and the first release of each major version is binary form is freely available.

    It would be nice if you could correct the information regarding bareos.

    Thank you very much,

    best regards,
