Unix Backup Solutions

Date of last revision: 2/11/1998

We have two systems available for backing up Unix workstations:

Unless otherwise stated, the rest of the information in this document assumes Omniback II backups.


Requirements


Scheduling

Our Omniback II backups run on a four-week cycle. This allows us to conveniently schedule backups to run daily, weekly, bi-weekly, or approximately monthly. We can also build custom schedules within the limits of our four-week cycle.

Backups are started at 8:00 PM each night, and run through the early morning hours. We attempt to minimize the number of systems being backed up each day so that backups will finish before systems start seeing use in the morning.
