System Backup Administrator

Storix Backup Administrator (SBAdmin) provides both an intuitive graphical user interface and command line options for performing backups of a standalone system, or managing backups of all Linux and AIX systems on a network. In addition to backing up data onto a network server, tape, or disk device, it can reinstall a complete system from scratch, clone or migrate systems, manage volumes and RAID devices, and restore data in any configuration you choose. It features easily accessible documentation.
