Use protocol 2 with extreme caution, it is not yet production ready.

It does variable length chunking for inline deduplication, with sparse indexing on the server side.
It can deduplicate the same blocks in differently named files across multiple clients, whilst being memory efficient due to the sparse indexing.

For more details on the ideas and development, you may read the report that I wrote for my degree in PDF or online HTML format.
Note: the report refers to 'protocol 1 / protocol 2' as 'burp 1 / burp 2' throughout.

It is currently missing some features, such as Windows EFS, encryption and compression support. The status monitor and counters are also not fully working.

Do not expect protocol 2, and the backups that it makes, to be compatible with future releases of burp.

Donate with Bitcoin

Burp is open and free software. I work on it in my spare time. If you would like this work to continue, please consider making a small donation.
