FreeNAS installation – setting up Unison (video)

Pox and Ragble explain how to use Unison to sync a Mac computer to a FreeNAS box.

Unison is a file-synchronization tool for Unix and Windows. It allows two replicas of a collection of files and directories to be stored on different hosts (or different disks on the same host), modified separately, and then brought up to date by propagating the changes in each replica to the other.

Unison shares a number of features with tools such as configuration management packages (CVS, PRCS, Subversion, BitKeeper, etc.), distributed filesystems (Coda, etc.), uni-directional mirroring utilities (rsync, etc.), and other synchronizers (Intellisync, Reconcile, etc)…. More

ReadyNas Vault – NAS-Linked online Disaster Recovery

ReadyNAS Vault software connects ReadyNAS systems to an enterprise-class Web-based storage infrastructure. You determine what you want protected and ReadyNAS Vault automatically and securely copies it offsite. ReadyNAS Vault software is tightly integrated into ReadyNAS storage systems, so you can confirm results, make changes, and recover files, even for multiple systems, from any Internet location.

Device-integrated Cloud Backup
Other backup solutions require a server and agents to be installed, managed, maintained, and licensed, but ReadyNAS Vault is built right into your storage. Differential backups, de-duplication and compression are all automatic, and management requires only a Web browser. Cut down costs while increasing reliability, all without adding complexity.

Web-based Management
Check transfer history, modify configurations, change scheduling and select backup sources from any browser-based location in real-time. No more waiting on email for logs after the fact, and multiple systems can be managed from a single login.

Continuos Data Protection Options
ReadyNAS Vault can watch for changes in real-time and provide immediate protection for new or modified files. Alternatively, backup jobs can be scheduled to run at specific intervals so that your data is moved offsite when it is most convenient for you. Advanced configuration options for bandwidth consumption and system usage provide you with complete control.

Recover Data Quickly
Browse to the files you need and replace them with a click. No need to restore from tapes, no concerns about software versions and no media management hassles – just browse and replace.

128-bit SSL transfer connections ensure that your data is kept private and secure during transmission and 256-bit AES encryption delivers additional protection while it sits on cloud storage systems.
ReadyNAS Vault makes backup to an offsite data center simple and affordable enough for both home users and small businesses.
