Amanda, or the Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver is a computer archiving tool that is able to backup data via a network. It uses a client server model and includes:
  • the backup server and client itself
  • a tape server
  • an index server

All three servers do not necessarily need to run on the one machine.

Amanda was developed by the University of Maryland[?] and is released under the GNU General Public License. It is provided without warranties and for no cost. Amanda runs on almost any Unix system, including open source systems.
