We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It works great and it provides you with several standard tools to restore your backup, even after a big failure."
"Bacula is pretty stable."
"It's very regimented and fast. It does local backup, cloud backup, long-term coverage, and disaster recovery."
"Its big data and archive data features are the features that I have found most valuable. I can use it in a big virtual environment."
"Easier setup and configuration, perhaps including a GUI, would be an improvement."
"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."
"The initial setup can be complex, depending on the environment."
"The limitation that I see in Cohesity is that the minimum sized node is 36 terabytes, which is more than a small customer needs."
"This is an open-source solution."
"It's priced properly for the market."
