Overall Satisfaction with Bacula Enterprise

We are a government facility and we generate and store
meteorological and hydrographic data. All this big amount of data needs
protection and availability even in case of failure. In this scenario,
we have been using Bacula to cover our needs for a couple of years now and in our own experience performing a restore or a point-in-time backup has been really easy and fast. We use the tool mainly to manage our daily backup routines.

Pros

  • Good level of stability
  • Excellent technical support
  • Integration with plugins
  • Low cost

Cons

  • Initial setup could be easier
  • Ability to handle high data volume
  • Multi-platform friendly
  • Good compression rate
  • We have seean an evident ROI since Bacula performs reliable backup and restore.
  • The tool helped us get the stability we needed.
  • The low price was a big plus.

Bacula is well suited for companies that need to configure and manage several jobs and schedules for backups. And it is still good even if your system is growing in both data and servers. The tool has provided us with a fast and reliable way to restore and recover our data. The downside was that at first, our team had a hard time with the initial setup since they had only basic knowledge of the command line, but this was overcome after a while.
