I'm looking for solution for not enough disk space on our server to store backups.
We have virtual server. When we dump data from database to disk it consumes lot of space. But it could be easily compressed by 30-50% using zip. We then move this dumps to backup server. We just need to reduce disk space used by dumps on disk.
I would like to find solution which will allow me to somehow mount temp filesystem to store dump.
I find fusecompress project whichdoes what we need but it seems still experimental and does not have official Debian package, so I am not sure if it is safe choice for production server backups.
Is there any other solution?
