How to back up data from Linux and Windows machines centrally with Bareos and restore them in case of disaster.

Performing periodic backups in computer networks is indispensable. In times of Locky and other ransomware backups are often the only option left to regain access to your data. Nevertheless, for backups to be effective against these types of threats, a number of aspects have to be considered.

I already reported on the status of UCS and the roadmap back at the Univention Summit in January. Since then, however, there have been a number of developments. After we recently reported on UCS 4.1-1, the first point release of Univention Corporate Server 4.1, it is high time that we provide an overview of what will be happening in the near future.

Jenkins is one of the most known Open Source automation server offering several hundred plug-ins for supporting the creation, testing, operation and automation of software. Thanks to Jenkins software will be automatically tested with each new feature that is added during the development process. This allows to notice early whether the new feature leads to an incorrect behavior in another area. Jenkins is furthermore the first app which our development team itself has provisioned as a native Docker app.

Univention & TecArt publish app bundle with Docker integration

Univention App Center mit TecArt App

In our App Center the new TecArt app, the first application based on the state-of-the-art “Docker” container technology for operation in UCS is now available. The app is stored in an isolated container, making it possible to run different software applications in the same server environment without conflicts.
I am glad, that TecArt is the first developer using our new Docker integration in the App Center. Container technology Docker LogoThe encapsulation via Docker allows TecArt to satisfy the specific requirements on essential software libraries and their versions via the App Center without any complex maneuvers or additional efforts.  

App Rating in the Univention App Center

Example App Rating in App Center
Everybody who surfs through the internet knows some sort of rating for products, software, photos, postings, etc. Ratings are present at your favorite online book store, your movie or music streaming provider and on the two biggest and well-known marketplaces for mobile devices. All those rating systems have in common that users can leave comments and give a rating between zero to five. Most people, including me, are influenced by ratings and use them in their buying decision process, sometimes even unconsciously. Now, we have also implemented a rating system in our App Center.

The Local Experts for Fast-Growing IT Needs

When reading our success stories, one could conclude that UCS is geared towards mid to large size businesses, school districts and government agencies. While many of these use UCS, and we are proud they trust us with their day-to-day IT operations, a large group of our customers are missing on this listing. These are your mom and pop shop down the road, the 3 person law office around the corner and the small non-profit in the neighborhood.

What makes small business customers distinct from the bigger ones?

Join a Windows Client to a UCS Domain

You cannot only join further UCS servers to an existing UCS domain but also various clients. After the join you can manage and configure these clients easily via the Univention Management Console from anywhere you are. Among those administrative tasks are, for example, the installation of software, the monitoring and controlling of services, and the network configuration.

In this article and in the video below I will show you in detail how easy that is.
