This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS, or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on this site: Search this site is the best way to find anything.
There are a couple of categories here - products which are mostly aimed at one or a small number of Unix machines, and those which are aimed at enterprise-wide, multiplatform backup. The following two lists are NOT meant to be all-inclusive, but merely a sample of some of the better-known products.
First, the ones aimed at one or a few Unix machines:
These products tend to be fast and robust, generally offer data compression, and tend to be able to handle errors on the backup media. Many also include, or can optionally be purchased with, utilities to create automated emergency recovery diskettes which are much friendlier and easier to use than the ones you can produce with standard SCO utilities.
Now, a few for those with more ambitious backup plans ... this section is under construction and hopefully I'll have some more contact info shortly.

Everyone knows that debugging is twice as hard as writing a program in the first place. So if you're as clever as you can be when you write it, how will you ever debug it? (Brian Kernighan)
