BozemanLUG: July 2015 Meeting

Jul 23 2015 - 7:00pm
Jul 23 2015 - 9:00pm

The meeting date this month was changed due to a number of factors.

Presenter: Andrew Niemantsverdriet

Topic: BURP is a network enabled backup solution. BURP began as Graham Keeling's master's thesis project which set out to solve all the headaches that backups can cause especially in an enterprise type environment. It draws some inspiration from the Bacula project.

BURP has two parts: a server and clients. You can have one or more servers that clients talk to. Client configuration can be done on both the client and server. So for example, you can have a set of defaults that are used server side that then can be overridden on the client side to customize the backup options. BURP supports client side encryption so if you can't trust the BURP server you are able to backup encrypted copies of your data. It also does deduplication, assuming that you do not have encryption turned on. Another neat feature is BURP provides "hooks" so that when a backup completes or begins, a script (or scripts) of your choosing can be run. For example, run mysqldump's before the backup to ensure database consistency. Another really useful thing is once all backups are complete one is able to ship the data off to the cloud to provide off-site backup. The encryption comes in very handy for this use case.

At the meeting, Andrew will run through what his disaster recovery plan and give a brief overview of RMC's infrastructure, especially as it pertains to BURP. If you have any specific questions / issues that you would like talked about at the meeting shoot Andrew an email.
