With the cost of disk drives becoming so cheep, many users are ditching slow and expensive tape based backup systems and replacing them with disk based backup.

I will talk about 3 linux based programs that can be used for disk based backup, rsync, a fast incremental file transfer program created by Andrew Tridgell of Samba fame. Ssh a secure network communication program, and dirvish, a perl script that automates network backups using rsync and ssh. If time permits, I will also go over configuring dirvish to work with Bran Hatch's authprogs
