Hello Dave

SWISH-e is indeed a pretty cool program, Webglimpse just offers a few different features - like integrating SQL queries into the full text search results, or using link popularity as an available variable in your customizable ranking algorithm, or generating search results as static pages at good URLs for external search engines to find.

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.
