Overall Satisfaction with Bacula Enterprise

We have been working with the Bacula Enterprise solution for the past three years, mainly to manage Backup Jobs, and also as a tool for data recovery. We need a reliable tool for data recovery both on tapes and on any other digital media, as we comply with legal level agreements whose non-compliance would generate great losses. The use of this tool facilitated the assistance of the team responsible for backups and also reduced data deduplication
