[OpenAFS] vos shadow to backup user homes
Sun, 25 Aug 2013 21:05:41 +0530 (IST)
I wanted to ask about "vos shadow" and whether it is being used
as a solution on production systems to back-up user home directories.
The most significant information I can find is a thread from this email
archive last year.
I can dedicate a server to host only shadow volumes. If an active server
fails and dies, the shadow copy can be brought online. Is this a better
solution than, say:
(1) keeping a periodically rsync'd copy of the /vicepx partitions on a
(2) afs over drbd
I am trying to use commodity hardware (no RAID, no scope for software RAID
either) to build cheap AFS storage.
