ElkarBackup is a free open-source software and it's based in other open source technologies as RSnapshot, Rsync, PHP and Symfony.

but sadly seems only windows and linux clients can be backed up
i.e. no Mac devices
Just spotted this, does look like a very good solution for Windows & Linux, which is 99.9% of Servers.
@timconsidine Maybe UR Backup would give us a Mac client backup solution?
Given Elkar is giving rsync a helpful GUI, it might be that Macs can use it as a backup destination.
Would unshackle me and many from Backblaze, which although nothing wrong with them, isn't open-source.
And Duplicati, which impressively has a Synology version (Synology being an ecosystem that I very much like for not relying on any cloud services):
Why might somebody choose ElkarBackup instead of SyncThing?

Syncthing is… well sync: copying and deleting two-way. If you delete a file, it’s deleted everywhere (notwithstanding some retention option). If ransomware encrypts a file, it’s encrypted everywhere.
ElkarBackup is backup: copying one way. It helps you when files have been deleted, encrypted etc.
@necrevistonnezr Exactly this
