This community package delivers high-performance (threadable) backup for Zarafa - also for filter-enabled backup strategies

Full description:

Zarafa-cluster-backup takes care to backup all users found by defined ldap-filters and is intended to be used in combination with cron. It is also possible to do overlapping backups (like one daily backup and some VIP backups for special users).

This project is actively used among customers delivering the performance expected whilst delivering the full ability of restore on brick-level backup. All backups between the first and the last (rotation) are stored incrementally. Please refer to the Zarafa docs for documentation on zarafa-backup and zarafa-restore.

Requirements for running zarafa-cluster-backup:

- perl (or perl-base)

- make

- ldapsearch (often in package ldap-utils)

- zarafa-backup (and corresponding libraries neccessary to zarafa-backup)
