This is the current description for reference. There is similar
topic at the end of the mail, where improvements are discussed
The tool supports asynchronous, local-coordinated, distributed
secure backup generation, forwarding, verification, storage
and deletion even in rugged environments. The system is open
to integration of own code. The codebase is very small and
kept simple to ease auditing.
Unlike business backup solutions, guerillabackup also considers
following conditions that might be encountered with private use:
* infrastructure uptime below 99%, e.g. machines not always powered
* poor network connectivity, e.g. mobile access, parallel video
* poor physical access and anti-theft protection of machines
* no security monitoring of machines
See /usr/share/doc/guerillabackup/Design.txt.gz section "Requirements"
for more information.
