Remote backup - magazine article

Post by johannes » 24 Mar 2007, 12:58

An article series on how to make a remote, distributed backup over several Bubba servers, in the swedish magazine "Elektronik i Norden". They plan to use Duplicity, SSH and Bittorent to make a quite clever backup system where users regularly back up each others data, fully encrypted.

The first article, an overview of the functionality, can be read here:

The entire magazine available here:
http://www.eetimes.eu/scandinavia/ARKIV/textalk.htm

Unfortunately only available in Swedish. :(

I'll update with the follow-ups when released!

From your description this sounds like a very cool project indeed!!

Unfortunately a Swedish article won't really help me understand what exactly they're doing... :(

Yes, I know, it's too bad. I am not able to copy the text, otherwise i'd try babelfishing it. Not that I think it would help though. :wink:

This article is just an overview and some smalltalk, when they go down to the really interesting stuff we'll try to post the essence of it here.
