11  <div class="h2-1">
12    <h2>What is Mondo Rescue ?</h2>
13  </div>
14       <B>Mondo is reliable.</B> It backs up your GNU/Linux server or
15       workstation to tape, CD-R, CD-RW, NFS or hard disk partition. In the
16       event of catastrophic data loss, you will be able to restore all of
17       your data [or as much as you want], from bare metal if necessary.
18       Mondo is in use by Lockheed-Martin, Nortel Networks, Siemens, HP (US
19       and France), IBM, NASA's JPL, the US Dept of Agriculture, dozens of
20       smaller companies, and tens of thousands of users.</P>
21       <B>Mondo is comprehensive.</B> Mondo supports LVM, RAID, ext2, ext3,
22       JFS, XFS, ReiserFS, VFAT, and can support additional filesystems
23       easily: just e-mail the <A HREF="/feedback.html">mailing list</A>
24       with your request. It supports adjustments in disk geometry,
25       including migration from non-RAID to RAID. Mondo runs on all major
26       Linux distributions and is getting better all the time. You may even
27       use it to backup non-Linux partitions, such as NTFS.</P>
28       <B>Mondo is free!</B> It has been published under the GPL (GNU Public
29       License), partly to expose it to thousands of potential beta-testers
30       but mostly as a contribution to the Linux community. I charge for
31       1-to-1 technical support to fund Mondo's development.</P>

64       There are dozens of regular contributors and over 300 members of the
65       mailing list. The user base is estimated at between 50,000 and
66       100,000. Mondo has a vibrant, active, rambunctious user and developer community.</P>
67      <P>
68       When I first created Mondo, I did so because there was nothing like
69       it available to me (not for a reasonable price, at least). Nowadays,
70       Mondo is not the only good, free disaster recovery solution for
71       Linux. You may wish to try <A HREF=""><B>mkcdrec</B></A>.
72        The software has been in existence for almost as long as Mondo, it
73       supports the same filesystems (including RAID and LVM), and its
74       author is friendly and helpful.</P>
75      <P>
76       Final thoughts</P>
77       &quot;Mondo is aimed at skilled users, not the 3l33T3 war3z crowd.
