I am currently reviewing our tape backup system, and am looking for a
system that can do the following:
1. Span multiple tapes
2. Support compression/encryption program (preferably in parallel, we
have a lot of CPU cores available)
3. Compress/encrypt on a per-file basis (minimise data loss with bad
blocks on a tape)
4. Run in a reasonable amount of time
GNU tar is out, as it can't compress multi-tape archives.
We are currently evaluating afio, but are running into trouble with
excessively long backup times.
Any suggestions regarding backup software that suits our needs?
