13    <h2>What is Mondo Rescue ?</h2>
14  </div>
15  <p>
16       <B>Mondo is reliable.</B> It backs up your GNU/Linux server or
17       workstation to tape, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R[W], DVD+R[W], NFS or hard disk partition. In the
18       event of catastrophic data loss, you will be able to restore all of
19       your data [or as much as you want], from bare metal if necessary.
20       Mondo is in use by Lockheed-Martin, Nortel Networks, Siemens, HP,
21       IBM, NASA's JPL, the US Dept of Agriculture, dozens of
22       smaller companies, and tens of thousands of users.</P>
24       <p>
25       <B>Mondo is comprehensive.</B> Mondo supports LVM 1/2, RAID, ext2, ext3, ext4,
26       JFS, XFS, ReiserFS, VFAT, and can support additional filesystems
27       easily: just e-mail the <A HREF="/support.shtml">mailing list</A>
28       with your request. It supports software raid as well as most hardware raid controllers. It supports adjustments in disk geometry,
29       including migration from non-RAID to RAID. It supports BIOS and UEFI boot modes. Mondo runs on all major
30       Linux distributions (Fedora, RHEL, OpenSUSE, SLES, Mageia, Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo) and is getting better all the time. You may even
31       use it to backup non-Linux partitions, such as NTFS.</P>
32       <p>
33       <B>Mondo is free!</B> It has been published under the GPL v2 (GNU Public
34       License), partly to expose it to thousands of potential beta-testers
35       but mostly as a contribution to the Linux community.

185      Mondo Rescue was first created because there was nothing like
186      it available at that time under a free license. Nowadays,
187       Mondo Rescue is not the only good, free disaster recovery solution for
188       Linux. You may wish to try <A HREF=""><B>ReaR</B></A>.
189       Another tool is <A HREF="">Clonezilla</A>.</P>
