    Fast, secure, efficient backup program

    Don’t think that’s a good idea. Remember, I want to backup my little home server. Therefore I don’t need any high-availability geo-replicated enterprise storage plans. For me it will be restic periodic job to my local NAS. Done.

  • docker-volume-backup

    Backup Docker volumes locally or to any S3, WebDAV, Azure Blob Storage or SSH compatible storage
