1Introduction
2============
3
4MondoRescue is the premier GPL disaster recovery suite for Linux/FreeBSD.
5
6This is the Mondo part of MondoRescue. Mondo comprises the mondoarchive and
7mondorescue tools that carry out the actual backups and and restores. The part
8of MondoReccue responsible for creating boot media is called Mindi and
9available in a separate package.
10
11MondoRescue is reliable. It backs up your server or workstation to tape, CD-R,
12CD-RW, DVD, NFS or hard disk partition. In the event of catastrophic data loss,
13you will be able to restore all of your data [or as much as you want], from
14bare metal if necessary. MondoRescue is in use by numerous blue-chip
15enterprises and large organizations, dozens of smaller companies, and tens of
16thousands of users.
17
18MondoRescue is comprehensive. MondoRescue supports LVM, RAID, ext2, ext3, ext4,
19JFS, XFS, ReiserFS, VFAT, and can support additional file systems easily. It
20supports adjustments in disk geometry, including migration from non-RAID to
21RAID. MondoRescue runs on all major Linux distributions and FreeBSD and is
22getting better all the time. You may even use it to backup non-Linux
23partitions, such as NTFS.
