Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

In general, using the system is simple, but it still has a graphical interface that is not so clear and easy to manipulate. It is not suitable for all browsers and is also not very responsive, not suitable for use on mobile devices. Other than that, performing a backup, restore, scheduling or test operation is relatively easy and fast, and can be performed, provided that they have training, by any technician.

It still has a lot of flaws to overcome, especially in the area of user friendliness. Searching and filtering is quite cumbersome. Once you find the job you from which you want to restore, be sure to write that job number down because you won't be able to quickly find the job again without it during a recovery.

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.

It's a heavy lift to get everything up and running - authentication, encryption, file configurations, schedules, storage pools, etc. However once it is all configured it runs like a top - we haven't had any outages due to service configuration since our initial deployment of Bacula in our infrastructure in 2018.

I have full confidence in the implementation of the system - additionally we're able to create support bundles to send to Customer Support in the event any of the configuration is incorrect and/or hard to spot.
