  • sanoid

    Policy-driven snapshot management and replication tools. Using ZFS for underlying next-gen storage. (Btrfs support plans are shelved unless and until btrfs becomes reliable.) Primarily intended for Linux, but BSD use is supported and reasonably frequently tested.

    Given ZFS it's potentially worth looking at

  • arq_restore

    command-line utility for restoring from Arq backups

  • SonarQube

    Static code analysis for 29 languages.. Your projects are multi-language. So is SonarQube analysis. Find Bugs, Vulnerabilities, Security Hotspots, and Code Smells so you can release quality code every time. Get started analyzing your projects today for free.

  • zfsnapr

    Recursive ZFS snapshot mounter

    I wrote a few months ago so I could finally have point-in-time consistent Borg backups with ZFS snapshots, without having the mess of teaching Borg where every .zfs directory was.

    It recursively snapshots mounted pools, and recursively mounts snapshots of the mounted datasets into a target ready to point your backup tools at. I do so via a chroot so I didn't need to make any changes to my Borg setup - just to how I run it.
