Linux AFS Port Availability

Transarc has ported AFS to most commercial UNIX platforms, as well as NT. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has made several non-Transarc supported ports of AFS to various other architectures. The MIT ports used source code owned by Transarc. (The source code is reported to be available for a reasonable price.) Therefore, access to the MIT ports requires one to be an AFS licensee or affiliated with an organization who is an AFS licensee. Linux AFS is one of the several ports made by MIT.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
