While in the first part of this series dedicated to the Proxmox backup server we saw how to install the distribution, and in the second we explored the web administration interface, in this third tutorial, we learn how to create and restore a backup of a physical host using the Proxmox backup client.
Proxmox backup server is an enterprise-level solution to backup containers, virtual machines and physical hosts. In the first part of this series, we learned how to download and install the distribution. Although the system can be managed from the command line, just like any other Linux distribution, it comes also with a user-friendly, integrated web interface.
Proxmox backup server is a free and open source, enterprise-level backup solution. It is implemented as a dedicated Linux distribution based on Debian, and supports essential features like deduplication and encryption. We can use it as a solution to back up and restore virtual machines, containers and physical hosts.
Jupyter Notebook is a web application used to produce computational documents, commonly called “notebooks” which can contain human-readable text, executable code, charts, and more. When used together with Python and libraries like pandas and Matplotlib, Jupyter notebooks are an excellent tool we can use for presentations and data analysis.
Pandas is a free and open source Python library released under the BSD license. Originally developed by Wes McKinney in 2008, and supported by companies like Intel and Nvidia, it is targeted at data analysis and manipulation. It can be easily used to read and write data from a variety of sources such as Excel spreadsheets, Comma-separated Values (CSV) files, and many more.
Flash drives are commonly used for storing and transferring data, but their speed can vary depending on the device and the environment in which it is used. If you’re looking to measure the speed of your flash drive, you can use a simple script written in bash and using the
dd command. In this article, we’ll explain how to write and run a bash script that will test the read and write speed of your flash drive, and provide an overview of how the script works. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced Linux user, this script is an easy and efficient way to measure the performance of your flash drive.
