Brebis - a fully automated backup checker
Anisette, our proud mascot!

Why do you need a backup checker?

You make backups? That's great! But are they usable?

The very day you will need your backup to restore your infrastructure, are you sure this backup you make three months ago contains the only file you need to restart your production environment? Are you sure this backup is not corrupted? Are you sure you do not store irrelevant or empty files instead of the ones you will need one day?

Brebis is a fully automated backup checker, automatically checking the integrity of your archives and lots of parameters of the files inside these archives and provide detailed reports if unexpected states are detected.
