Easy to use, stable, and offers many tools and features

What is our primary use case?

We have three central servers, each one backing up the machines on their respective site. We have a combination of servers and other storage devices. It is a standard backup solution where we have an incremental backup every night. We do a differential backup on Sundays and then a full backup on a monthly basis. We also do a restore task once a month to verify the backup.

Pros and Cons

  • "It works great and it provides you with several standard tools to restore your backup, even after a big failure."
  • "Easier setup and configuration, perhaps including a GUI, would be an improvement."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to take your time and have patience with the initial setup and configuration. Once it is set up properly, it is a good system to use. If, on the other hand, you are really eager and want to use this solution in five minutes then it is not a good system for you. Once you get through the learning phase, it is very good. Overall, this is a good solution but there are a few small features missing. Because it is open-source, it is somewhat slower to follow the standards set by similar commercial products. I would rate this solution a nineā€¦

A stable solution that works well with Linux servers

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and this is one of the backup products that we implement for our clients.

Pros and Cons

  • "Bacula is pretty stable."
  • "Bacula needs a graphical user interface because, for administrators, the command-line interface is okay, but for the average user it is not very easy."

What other advice do I have?

The suitability of Bacula Enterprise depends on the environment and user requirements. In general, I recommend it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
