Burt, the backup and recovery tool, is an extension for Tcl/Tk 8.0 designed to perform backups to and recoveries from tapes. A Burt installation consists of the Burt extension module and a set of Tcl/Tk 8.0 scripts to make use of that module to perform backups.

Burt can backup virtually any system imaginable because of its integration with Tcl/Tk. At the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Computer Sciences Department, we use Burt to backup about 350 workstations and a substantial AFS filespace, for a total of roughly 750 GB of data.

Why Burt is better than the rest

There are a few reasons why Burt is better than, say, Amanda or any other backup software available. Here's a brief list detailing some of those reasons.
