Hi

I have NVMe and Storage vps in the same data center
I want to set up an intranet backup.
How to build an intranet
And what program to use for backup

Can the traffic of two vps be combined for billing use?

lsyncd
rsync
borgbackup
rclone

Which one is easy to use.?

thank you all

    You need to describe the use case better - the tools you list are for different purposes.

    • Do you just want to replicate data (lsyncd), or keep versioned backups (borg)?
    • Do you have thousands/millions of small files (do not use lsyncd), or larger files?
    • What is the acceptable delay - sync daily (rsync+cron) or instantly (lsyncd)?

    "Intranet" is just an eth1 interface with an IP in private range. If you do "reconfigure networking" in HH control panel after the private IP address is assigned, the changes should be made to /etc/network/interfaces, but if you want to do it manually, add something like:

    auto eth1
    iface eth1 inet static
            address 10.x.x.x
            netmask 255.254.0.0
    

    Do same on other VPS. ifup eth1. Now you have intranet with the two of them.

    However, note that the "intranet" is not isolated; other HH customers with a private IP can potentially snoop your traffic. So it is advised to encrypt data on the intranet until this changes. For example, use ssh or put a VPN like wireguard on the private IP.

    I'll try it right away

  • You can use sshfs to mount but yeah their internal networking is not isolated.
