Amanda, the Advanced Maryland Automatic Network Disk Archiver, is a backup system that
allows the administrator of a LAN to set up a single master backup server to back up
multiple hosts to a single large capacity tape drive. Amanda uses native dump and/or
GNU tar facilities and can back up a large number of workstations running multiple
versions of UNIX. Recent versions can also use Samba to back up Microsoft Windows hosts.
