I was searching for a simple backup solution in Linux system that could serve in block-level backup and for disaster recovery as well, and yet simply cost effective. Now-e-days, one could see a lot of options, however, I wanted to try out simple and yet native Linux solution, so, I came across this "dump & restore" utility. This may not be an ideal solution for a larger network, but one could leverage on this for smaller network wherein there is no tight schedule on recovery. So, I thought of creating a step-by-step document of the same.
Complete system can be backed up and restored using native Linux commands “dump & restore” which would facilitate backup or disaster recovery process.
