Cool pump project

Great article ! ! ! ! I will muster the courage and jump into the pump sensor project. I am a little overwhelmed with the details of your article but I will take it slow and do my homework. My pump project is for a secondary battery powered backup system that has a circuit connected to a buzzer when it kicks on. The Linux based controller with ethernet ports is what I will concentrate on so that I will receive an email or a page when the system runs. Thanks for a great article. This is helping me get excited about the project.

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.
