Overall Satisfaction with Bacula Enterprise

A system with a simple and efficient interface for its management, in addition to providing backup solutions for several mixed operating systems, automating backup tasks that normally require the intervention of a system administrator. Currently, I perform backup and restore of a VMware environment with several virtual machines and databases, such as Oracle, and PostgreSQL. The ability to modulate the solution, separating management responsibilities for both the application and the Director and Storage servers, simplifies management.

Micro Focus Data Protector has a poor support service and there is no active community, the user interface is not intuitive and the cost-benefit ratio of the solution is much lower than that of the Bacula system backup solution, in my opinion.
