    Bacula Systems

    The Bacula Enterprise tool is recommended for use by any companies that need a data backup and recovery solution that is adaptable and scalable, regardless of the size of the data and the company. The installation of the tool will not impact the company's policies and there are great possibilities for integration with the IT environment and tools. A less appropriate scenario is if your company does not have a team with minimal backup experience, but this is remedied by the excellent support offered.

    • Skyvia Backup is a web tool, that's why we don't need to install and maintain it. The interface is pretty intuitive and you can clearly see what's going on with your backups, compare backup versions, and restore specific records per request.

    Cons

    Bacula Systems

    • Our team always points out the same problems, I believe that, today, is our biggest complaint: The interface (both graphical and the CLI) still needs improvement.
    • There is no mobile app to manage backups and restores from smartphones
    • Manual installation is time consuming.

    • We'd like some improvement on backup email notification - we receive emails if the backup creation has failed for some reason, but we don't receive them when it has been completed, or when we run out of disk space. It requires spending some additional time to log in and check whether the disk space is still enough. Would be great to save this time for other tasks.

        Easy to use, proactive and effective customer support, and simple deployment method. The high configurability is what makes this tool so effective for my organization - at no point do I have any issues of trust as to the restorability of a fileset. The GUI provided gives clear actionable reports as to the effectivity of the jobs performed.

        Usability

        Bacula Systems

        This is a hard question. Usability for whom? For someone who is very comfortable at the command line and willing to put in the time to learn Bacula Enterprise's configuration syntax, it's very usable. Just don't expect to be an expert immediately.

        Support Rating

        Bacula Systems

        They're excellent, fast to respond and knowledgeable. I can't fault the support provided at all. On every occasion that we've had a need to contact them during our evaluation, installation, and use of Bacula Enterprise, they've always given us the help that we required. The responses they provide are detailed and we always feel that they've taken the time to read and understand our issue and give a full and personalized answer.

        The professor understood the tool very well, it was a fact that he had mastery over the system and knew what he was talking about, clearing up all doubts and passing on all the necessary knowledge so that we could handle Bacula Enterprise in our organization.

        Alternatives Considered

        Bacula Systems

        I used CTERA almost from the time they started up. In short, it was very easy to use but configuration was limited; and in the end the agents were troublesome and I could not restore files. They had one person on staff who was terrific with tech support, when he left support became difficult and I lost confidence. Acronis was my first experience with a bare-metal recovery operation and it was terrific. Really saved the day. I would still be using it except the licensing was difficult and expensive and the software wasn't Linux friendly.

        We evaluated Spanning Backup for Salesforce, but it didn't match our business scenario, as they create daily incremental backups without a possibility for retention.

        Return on Investment

        Bacula Systems

        • Our Disaster Recovery policy in regards to backups and archiving is made possible because of our use of Bacula Enterprise.
        • TCO is very low as the yearly subscription is very competitively priced. Management of the software is very low so we don't have to spend hours maintaining our backups.

        • We haven't measured the ROI yet, but the fact that we don't have to pay per each user that accesses our backup account is very beneficial to us, as we are a small organization.
