SCSI—Small Computer System Interface
While my plan was to cover SCSI, I thought a listing of backup software would also be relevant, since I installed a tape device. Options range from using basic Linux utilities (tar) to expensive commercial solutions.
Some of the commercial backup solutions available are listed in Table 1. The list is only a sample, and I am sure many other solutions are available. To any companies I may have left out: speak up in the letters section of LJ. Some of these commercial products are free for personal use. Both BRU200 and PerfectBackup may be included with some Linux distributions. Arkeia was reviewed in the April '99 issue of Linux Journal.
For KDE users, there is a backup utility called KDat which is documented in the KDE on-line help. For further information, see the web pages shown in Table 1 or the Linux applications page listed in Resources.
To summarize, my intent was to help the beginner answer the questions:
What do I need?
Where do I start?
Where do I find more information?
Sufficient information is provided to enable the beginner to install one or more SCSI devices in a Linux-based PC. Pointers to other sources of information will hopefully answer any questions that this article did not.
