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.

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.

Bacula plays an important role to ensure our data recovery. Bacula also has so many flexibilities that we can configure according to our needs. We use Bacula Enterprise, Bacula vSphere Plugin, and Bacula Web. I would like to give a big shout to Bacula Support. Their reaction is great and is very helpful with troubleshooting the problems that I had. The explanation of troubleshooting is also clear and in a very detailed way.

Bacula Enterprise is used across our IT organization, but we do have another product being used in the UK. We backup a variety of systems using different backup options. We have Linux servers, Windows servers, and these are a mix of physical and virtual -- both VMware and Hyper-V. The virtual infrastructure is about 95%. We do a BMR backup once each month, full backups daily of VMware virtual servers (both Linux and Windows), a full weekly for any non-virtual server, and incremental daily in-between.

We are the McLean Imaging Center--the neuroimaging center at McLean Hospital. McLean maintains the world's largest neuroscientific and psychiatric research program in a private hospital. It is the largest psychiatric facility of Harvard Medical School, an affiliate of Massachusetts General Hospital, and part of Mass General Brigham. The Imaging Center is primarily research, with some clinical duties as well. At the Center we back up ~50 clients and ~1.5 PB to a mix of disk and LTO7 tape. Our primary workload is research neuroimaging data.

Bacula Enterprise is being used in the university's Rectory, covering all the main systems of the institution. We perform backups of our systems, stored on tapes and other storage. Backups are performed daily, including full, incremental, and differential backups. Our backups are divided into daily, weekly, and advanced backups, with reduced retention of 7 days for 1 year. Currently, we use some plugins like MySQL, Postgres, Ldap, Docker, and S3.

We are currently centralizing the existing scattered backup solutions into one solution. Due to the number of heterogeneous systems, we strongly need a centralized solution with dependable monitoring, encryption, secure cloud support for off-site backups and support for different environments and operating systems. Bacula's plug-in system provides support for our needs, may it be Windows, Linux, databases, Exchange, etc.

We deployed Bacula Enterprise to replace our incumbent, commercial, backup vendor after support costs increased significantly and support quality was less than expected. We conducted a PoC first, and were very impressed at the ease of use, scalability, and the effectiveness and responsiveness of the Bacula support team.
Bacula Enterprise is being used in all of our data centers throughout the United States to backup physical servers, VMware, and NAS arrays (NDMP) to deduplicating disk targets and tape.

Bacula Enterprise is being used by one department within the organization. It supports our need to have regular and reliable backups of our data to protect against system failure and user error. We use it to back up data from around 50 systems, both physical and virtual, to disk storage and then to tape for offsite storage.
