This hands-on lab is designed specifically to show how a free tool, rsync, can be used to perform backup and recovery operations from a local system to a remote one. Rsync derives its name from its main task: remote synchronization. It is commonly used as a backup or mirroring tool, but can also be used to sync files either remotely or locally.
