BaaS User Guide
===============
BaaS general description, shown in the first page. Edit index.rst to change it.
BaaS (Backup as a Service) is a service provided to Synnefo users in order to
backup their data to `Pithos`_ Storage. It supports encrypted, incremental backups
in a space and bandwidth-efficient way through a Graphical User Interface (GUI)
as well as a Command Line Interface (CLI).
Leave an empty line to change paragraph. Use `this notation`_ if you like.
BaaS uses `Duplicity`_ as the backend.
What to write here? By convention, provide a general description then briefly
refer to the licence and the development team and provide some contact details.
BaaS GUI is implemented and supported by the `Synnefo Development Team`_ of the
`Greek Research and Technology Network`_ and is an open source project, licensed
under GPL v3.
