The gm-move_backups_offsite script can be used to move backups to another host, IOW storing them "offsite" in the loosest sense of the word.


Imagine the following situation:

1) a laptop running client and database which is

   taken to the office, to patients, etc

2) a desktop at home with some spare storage

3) the laptop is occasionally connected to the home

   network and thus has access to the desktop machine

Given appropriate configuration of gm-move_backups_offsite one could add the following two lines to the cron script on the laptop to make sure database backups are replicated to the desktop whenever the laptop has access to it:

@reboot /usr/bin/

5 0-23 * * * /usr/bin/
