Another industry veteran, Jose Calhariz. joins us this week to explain how he uses the community versions of two open-source backup tools to meet his university’s backup needs, while saving money. We have a very interesting discussion that includes coverage of dump, tar, and Amanda. Jose also tells a great story of a huge recovery he had to do, that took several days.
