Overall Satisfaction with Bacula Enterprise

At CloudHQ, we depend on Bacula every day to backup our critical systems. We have a mixed Windows/Linux environment and needed a solution that can span multiple platforms without breaking the bank. More importantly, we needed software that reliably did it's one thing of backing up or restoring our critical data and systems. The Bacula support staff are passionate about their product and it shows in customer service and technical abilities.
  • Backs up software from multiple systems.
  • Restores software to multiple systems.
  • Notifications.
  • Reliable.
  • A little tricky to set-up at first, but like setting a watch, once you do it its a piece of cake.
  • Restores are done as fast as the underlying hardware can provide.
I have just always used Bacula, it's been great. I have not used much software at this scale since Legatto or Veritas Volume Manager. I'm sure there are other great products out there, but Bacula was easy for me to implement since I'm well versed in Linux.
They respond to every ticket within a reasonable time frame. Always same-day response.
