Networked Time Machine backup and Journaling support in HFS+ filesystem

 A leader in the network device manufacturing space faced issues enabling automated Time Machine backups on their Mac based system. The backup was to be performed over the network, utilising Linux-based routers.
Alumnus developed a hardware independent solution that can be used across all of their product lines. File journaling support was added from scratch. This was made to work with the HFS+ filesystem, which was unsupported by the Linux kernel at the time.
The customer implemented Alumnus’ solution across their product lines to maintain compatibility with Mac machines.
