Overall Satisfaction with Bacula Enterprise

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.
  • Dedup, often above 90%.
  • Intuitive web console.
  • Plugin diversity.
  • Tool tuning could be a little easier, or there are some templates.
  • A single client installation along with the plugin, so you can choose which plugin to install.
  • Web console, which facilitates administration.
  • Integration with most backup solutions.
  • Cloud backup.
  • I believe that since the implementation it is already giving feedback because the previous solution was totally outdated and problematic.
  • Unfortunately, I can't provide values ​​because I don't have access to my sector's finance.
Although it is a well-known and robust solution, it didn't work for us. Bad console, the bad solution to manage, few integrations, very expensive, poor support, that is, it was not difficult to decide on the exchange. In addition to the bad experience to make a DR of the solution itself. We had everything that was needed and indicated, but it didn't work.

Did implementation of Bacula Enterprise go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Bacula Enterprise again?

Yes

This solution helps us a lot to keep the structure unsafe in case of disaster, as it has the facility to restore the backup environment itself, if necessary, and also the backed-up content. We had previous problems in another solution, we lost the environment and not even solution consultants were able to get back up and running, and we lost our entire backup base for more than 5 years, even though we kept the best practices in preventive maintenance of the environment. With Bacula Enterprise, I feel confident that this will not happen, due to the simplicity of restoring its environment.
