In order to affect a backup system we identified two old servers in two different geographical locations.

Each server has Ubuntu server LTS and BackupPC installed.

BackupPC is setup to use the "rsyncd" method for pulling in the backups from the clients.


  • Step 1. A local backup is performed daily per server
  • Step 2. The local backup is then copied/synced to both backup servers which use BackupPC.

To setup a similar system, first configure the clients and then configure the servers.
