Hi Storj enthusiasts ,
Duplicati has now a built-in Tardigrade connector. That’s very good news
But there also a lot of other very powerful open-source backup software.
Among those, there is Borg Backup.
I tested several backup software. Several times each. Back and forward. Borg Backup is the one that best fits with my own needs.
But this is not the place to compare Duplicati and Borg (both are very good anyway).
I would like to suggest considering the option of creating a Tardigrade connector for Borg Backup.
In my opinion, this software is more script-oriented than Duplicati and allows to easily create complex Backup tasks, using your favorite scripting language, with backup externalization, compression, deduplication and history/archiving features.
Borg backup can already send backup to Cloud providers, including Tardigrade, by using the Tardigrade S3 gateway and mounting the bucket. But it would be very nice if a built-in connector would be implemented. It would be as easy as sending backup to a Borg server.
Plus, Borg Backup doesn’t have a native GUI, it targets directly developers, system admins and so on. They would probably be interested by Tardigrade.
So what do you think about creating a Tardigrade connector for Borg backup?
