I've recently started using Bacula Enterprise after switching from IBM's TSM. I wanted to do a proof on concept before pruchasing the product and Bacula helped with not only one proof of concept but also another one several months after the first trial. During this time I had Bacula helping set the system up and I also logged a few support calls to see what the ticket system was like. All tickets were picked up quickly and the support team were helpful. We purchased Bacula including a weeks training course. The course was great and explained Bacula clearly. So much so I was able to download the community edition at home on my NAS! Now we are using Bacula I've been able to see how support is after purchase and so far so good!<br>

Main requirement is for extreme security and fast recovery of data and my applications.
Sometimes I need to do single file recovery but also be prepared for bare metal recovery.
Nowadays we all need to keep the cost at minimum and Bacula helped me with that.
Now I'm experimenting with Bacula replicating my K8s deployment. Seems to work well and will help me grow my business.
My business challenge is that I do not have much time to spend on data backup. It just must me simple and easy thing to manage.
Bacula support team is always fast and super friendly with any inquiries I had

Bacula Enterprise helped a lot in the backup solution, I had already used other solutions but not one as complete. -It has the differential of backup using dedup that helps the network not to copy twice. -there's the virtual full that we use for weekends. -connectivity with various services and systems (windows, linux and database) Among many other things, incredible technical support!

Currently, the Brazilian Naval Supply System Command uses Bacula Enterprise to backup and restore the database. As a result, we have advanced features and the ability to handle the high volume of data we need for daily life, performing snapshots, advanced deduplication, single-file restores efficiently and reliably. I can detail as pros & cons the following personal use cases. Pros: Data reliability and great cost-benefit. Cons: interface difficult to handle, demanding high study time.

Here at Prodap, we have been struggling for a long time to access a Backup software that was good and cheap, we found Bacula as the best value for money. Right from the start, it solved our compression problem because the others we used weren't very efficient about it. It made us take up less storage.

As a daily user of the Bacula Enterprise tool, it was necessary to improve knowledge about data backup and recovery technology. My team is responsible for maintaining the backup in various files on virtual servers and times to ensure that all Backup services work correctly on a daily basis. We are also responsible for handling data recovery tickets from servers and databases. We use Postgres and Oracle.

We have been working with the Bacula Enterprise solution for the past three years, mainly to manage Backup Jobs, and also as a tool for data recovery. We need a reliable tool for data recovery both on tapes and on any other digital media, as we comply with legal level agreements whose non-compliance would generate great losses. The use of this tool facilitated the assistance of the team responsible for backups and also reduced data deduplication

We use Bacula Enterprise as a data backup and restore solution. Currently, I also use the solution to verify that all Backup services are active and running correctly. The use of the tool made it possible to manage backup services in an easier and simpler way, as this is an activity that I perform routinely. In addition to data recovery, we also use Bacula to ensure that our databases, files and other types of data are safe and accessible by transferring to LTO tapes.

We are a government facility and we generate and store meteorological and hydrographic data. All this big amount of data needs protection and availability even in case of failure. In this scenario, we have been using Bacula to cover our needs for a couple of years now and in our own experience performing a restore or a point-in-time backup has been really easy and fast. We use the tool mainly to manage our daily backup routines.

We currently use Bacula to back up multiple virtual machines. We have 103 important jobs that perform data copying every day for the organization. Backup is very important as this data is constantly updated and is essential for navigation and safety at sea. It is centralized management through a graphical interface and is released for multi-users. This solves our problem.

Backup service for servers, databases, and virtual machines, and transfer of virtual to physical data using tapes. It is possible to manage these services using a simple and friendly interface. Through the interface, it is possible to save time and costs for my company. The tool is used for all database services and machines currently used by the data center.

Our company relies heavily on Bacula Enterprise these days. For three years we have been using Bacula Enterprise as disaster recovery and backup solution. We currently use it as a tool for managing backups of servers, files, and databases, with more than 2Tb of data. Our data are linked to historical and current data in hydrographic areas. The adoption of Bacula Enterprise as a tool provided us with reliability and less deduplication of our data.

During these two years, we have been using Bacula Enterprise as a backup and disaster recovery solution for our entire data environment. This tool solved the problems we had in monitoring backups and in the agility to recover information. We are currently using this solution for more than 2Tb of data in a primarily virtualized environment. Bacula Enterprise's technical support has perfectly met all the needs we've had in recent years. The installation of the tool was easy and the entire team adapted well to the daily use of this solution.

Throughout my 20 years in the data recovery industry, working in complex and large scenarios, I’ve never had to intervene in an environment that uses Bacula Enterprise. I’m the proof that Bacula Enterprise is a very efficient backup and disaster recovery solution. The system also has a wide variety of plugins, and the team provides great customer service. That's why I have Bacula Enterprise as a solution for protecting my company's data and I recommend it whenever I can.

We use Bacula to backup our virtual machines, we have more than 100 VMs and a daily backup volume of 2TB. And everything is possible thanks to bacula, a complex system that is easy to understand for those who "know". What i like most about working with bacula is the fact that it is easy to create a job for every need i have, and the infinity of things i can do is very wide, I partition the backup on my tapes, or on storage.

A system with a simple and efficient interface for its management, in addition to providing backup solutions for several mixed operating systems, automating backup tasks that normally require the intervention of a system administrator. Currently, I perform backup and restore of a VMware environment with several virtual machines and databases, such as Oracle, and PostgreSQL. The ability to modulate the solution, separating management responsibilities for both the application and the Director and Storage servers, simplifies management.

Bacula is an intelligent backup solution. We use it for corporate backup with industry data copy routines and administrative environment. We use Bacula with a focus on filesystem backups (Linux, Windows) and Database (SQL and Oracle). In the future we will use the VMWare backup function.

We use Bacula to perform backups of our entire data infrastructure, with it we are able to restore data whenever one of our users requests lost files from days and months prior to their accidental alteration or deletion. This is everyday usage, but the usage strategy goes much further, with Bacula backups being our last line of defense against file and server encryption attacks.

The reason we use Bacula Enterprise is to provide an effective backup and disaster recovery framework. As the solution is agnostic, that is, it can be deployed in practically any system or application, we understand that Bacula Enterprise is currently the most appropriate solution for our environment. We use it to backup servers (Linux, MS-Windows Server, FreeBSD), database (Oracle, MySQL and MS-SQL), virtualized environments (Vmware), applications, in addition to shared file backups

We changed from an old competitor solution and started to use Bacula Enterprise as a backup solution for our entire corporate technological environment with a file server, database, virtual servers, directory server, using dedupe, saving a lot on tapes and volume in the storage. The solution proves to be very effective, agile, and simple to administer. Best cost-benefit that we find on the market, as they have the same resources as the traditional ones, and for a much more affordable price.
