Overall Satisfaction with Bacula Enterprise

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.
  • Global deduplication
  • User-friendly administration
  • Business applications backup
  • I believe some basic plugins such as Delta and BWeb, should be free
  • Flexible deployment
  • Several important plugins and bare metal plugins
  • User-friendly dashboard
  • High data compression and quick restoration capability
  • Google Workspace, Microsoft 365, Nutanix and SAP Hana backup
  • Tape library backup
  • Lower price
  • Bacula Enterprise helped me reducing my backup licensing costs
  • Bacula Enterprise reduced the amount of necessary storage space with deduplication
  • Bacula Enterprise automation helped me reduce the number of required backup administration staff
We are a data recovery company and we use to receive backup media from several backup systems from the market when the original software can't restore them after data storage accidents or for some other different reasons. Bacula Enterprise is the only software that we never had to deploy alternative restore methods.

Do you think Bacula Enterprise delivers good value for the price?

Did Bacula Enterprise live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Bacula Enterprise go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Bacula Enterprise again?

Yes

Bacula Enterprise is great for medium and large data centers due to its scalability and robustness. However, I know of small businesses that use it successfully. The amount of Storage Daemons installed is unlimited, so it is possible to have different NAS-type storage equipment and tape libraries on different machines, with load balancing and/or failover.
