Guard Against Data Loss with Mondo Rescue

Hugo shows how to use Mondo to restore your system in the event of catastrophic data loss.
Conclusion

Good backup software must be well documented, well tested and easy to use. If the backup software is too fiddly then the user simply will not bother. If it is unreliable, then the user will be lulled into a false sense of security, only to have his or her hopes dashed when the crunch comes. I back up my own system with Mondo two or three times a week. I restore regularly as part of the test regime.

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.
