It's your data. Keep it that way.
borgmatic is simple, configuration-driven backup software for servers and workstations. Protect your files with client-side encryption. Backup your databases too. Monitor it all with integrated third-party services.
Here's an example configuration file:
location: # List of source directories to backup. source_directories: - /home - /etc # Paths to local or remote repositories. repositories: - user@backupserver:sourcehostname.borg retention: # Retention policy for how many backups to keep. keep_daily: 7 keep_weekly: 4 keep_monthly: 6 consistency: # List of checks to run to validate your backups. checks: - repository - archives hooks: # Custom preparation scripts to run. before_backup: - prepare-for-backup.sh # Databases to dump and include in backups. postgresql_databases: - name: users # Third-party services to notify you if backups aren't happening. healthchecks: https://hc-ping.com/be067061-cf96-4412-8eae-62b0c50d6a8c
