Ssh Remote Backups

  • submit to reddit
//  Backup with remote compression and storage

// When compression is necessary (and feasible), workload
// distribution becomes more effective with OpenSSH. Just as // distcc allows multiple machines to compile
// simultaneously, OpenSSH lets one system create the
// archive, while another system compresses it:

// tar cf - dirname | ssh remotehost "gzip -c >
// ${TMPFILE}.tar.gz" 

tar cf - local-dir-eliotwalker | ssh -l mctt "gzip -c > corr.tar.gz"
