Is there any open source backup software with NDMP support?

I'm looking for open source software (or free software) for backing up a large NAS file server, which supports the NDMP protocol and uses the NDMP protocol for backup/restore. I was unable to find anything, yet...

Of course, Bacula. See http://wiki.bacula.org/doku.php?id=comparisons

Bareos appears to provide NDMP support in their basic open-source release.

There's what looks to be a reasonable reference implementation at ndmjob. Shouldn't be too hard to shoehorn that into something workable with a few scripts.

  • It looks like it hasn't been updated since 2002, but if the manual is anything to go by, it looks like a really useful tool. – chris Nov 30 '09 at 13:34

It doesn't look like it.

Freshmeat doesn't show any projects with ndmp in their names or description: (http://freshmeat.net/search?q=ndmp&submit=Search) and Bacula has been talking about supporting it since 2007 with nothing to show.

Sorry about your (and my) luck. A FOSS implementation of NDMP would be a big win for the enterprise community.

BTW, for anyone looking for more information on NDMP, the site of choice is http://www.ndmp.org/info/overview.shtml

NDMPCopy

NDMP SDK

There are some tools to use NDMP to a NetApp filer and there has been some limited testing with ZFS on OpenSolaris. Overall nothing as elegant as the commercial side.

  • It's too bad they don't seem to ship the sources. It looks like it is solaris and HP/UX. 1999 called and wants their vendor support model back. – chris Nov 30 '09 at 13:35
