Wrappers around common Unix tools for simplified backup solution
Tartarus provides a nice wrapper around basic Unix tools such as tar, find and curl well, that’s not that basic to provide a seamless backup solution, aimed at automatic gathering and backup.
It has the ability to do full as well as incremental backups and is published by Stefan Tomanek under the rules of the GPL.
Instead of relying on single usage backup scripts or complicated command lines, tartarus reads its configuration from easily manageable configuration files. It can store gathered data in regular files, or upload the backup directly on the fly to an FTP server. For more specific usage scenarios, custom methods can also be defined within the config file.
