Simple Linux Backups with Rsync Command
Having a comprehensive data protection policy in place is now a fundamental practice to help ensure your data weathers all storms that can be thrown at it. Saying that it should be done is the easy part, but actually doing it gets more complex and laborious, depending on the policy in place and what standards and laws the organization needs to adhere to.
Fortunately for Linux users, a tool exists that makes backing up data a breeze, and it can all be done from the command line.
Utilizing rsync’s most basic features allows the user to backup, modify, and delete files via the use of a remote server.
