Following the 3.6 release, we have updated our Linux clients to support new Linux operating system versions for CentOS, Fedora, Ubuntu, and Debian. The Zmanda Linux Client provides a reliable, cost-effective solution to protect your Linux systems against data loss. Zmanda Linux Clients interface seamlessly with the Zmanda Management Console, enabling administrators to use one intuitive, point-and-click interface to back up your infrastructure.
Please refer to the documentation for supported platforms and installation guides for new client binaries.
A few highlights of our most popular capabilities we are bringing onto the new operating clients:
- Flexible Media Options
- Choose from a wide range of media for backup, including tape, tape libraries, disks (DAS, NAS, SAN, RAID), optical jukeboxes, and online storage including Amazons S3.
- Backup Fault Tolerance
- Zmanda gracefully skips systems (e.g. laptops) that cannot be backed up in a particular run and adds them to the next backup run.
- Intelligent Scheduler
- A unique scheduler automatically determines backup levels to optimize network and storage usage.

Alongside these new capabilities, our open source development and distribution model enables us to deliver the highest quality backup software such as Amanda Enterprise and Zmanda Recovery Manager for MySQL at a fraction of the cost of software from proprietary vendors. Our simple-to-use yet feature-rich backup software is complemented by top-notch services and support expected by enterprise customers.
Given the ever-evolving nature of today’s cyber-threats, Zmanda is also constantly enhancing data retention policies.
Together these planned enhancements underscore Zmanda’s drive to deliver complete cyber protection for partners and customers alike – ensuring the safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security of data (Five Vectors of Cyber Protection). Zmanda helps their service providers, customers overcome ever-evolving backup requirements, and the rising costs associated with those trends. In short, Zmanda focuses on delivering secure, easy, and efficient cyber protection solutions.
