If you already have a bunch of websites and you need to backup all of them, then PDS can download all the files and databases into your local web directory in one go.
PDS is the software to manage multiple websites and master them at your local/desktop/notebook computer.
It runs in Ubuntu Linux at the moment and my plans are include all OSes.
Easy to use. Maybe not so easy to configure yet but it is coming.
PDS cosists of two parts:
1. Desktop application, written in linux shell
2. Server configuration panel, where you configure your hosts

Server part is to serve for local network on desktopless trusted LAN networks, and on a local setup it is used to setup all scheduling and hosts.
Desktop application is used to manually synchronize/update/deploy your hosts.
When your sites are in the intense development you will use desktop part a lot, but if you run it on a backup server then you will never see this desktop application unless you use something like VNC.

So use of PDS will dramatically isncrease speed of websites development by decreasing administration time to its possible minimum.
