Overall Satisfaction with Bacula Enterprise

Bacula Enterprise Edition is used by my organization and our experience with BEE as a solution has been very positive. It has been used to back up about 400TB of data to Onprem Disk/Tape Media and Azure Blob Storage as a target. We use BEE to perform full and incremental backups in our environment.
  • NDMP, incremental accelerator.
  • Copy/migrate offsite jobs.
  • Encryption in transit and at rest.
  • Can automate with scripting.
  • BWeb GUI can be used to avoid syntax errors.
  • Verify jobs after backups.
  • Bootstrap files make life a lot easier when doing a restore when the catalog isn't available anymore.
  • Plugins (Dedup, Cloud, vSphere etc.)
  • Strong development team, provides training for users, and support team is very helpful.
  • Product is complex with many resources.
  • Cost is billed at host based model and not storage based scenario.
Support team is very helpful.
