First start with a 100% open source project. Work hard, build a community, build a solid product that provides […]


More Bareos Spin and Misinformation

5 April 2014

I have always tried to be measured when writing about Bareos as well as careful to include exact references to material I provide, and to avoid if possible making direct personal attacks on them, so I never cease to be amazed at how  much misinformation Bareos puts on their site.  They consistently misquote and give […]

“We are using Bacula to backup a number of elements. One of them is the data from the SCOS 2000 application (the generic mission control system software of ESA). We also backup multiple environments related to the deployment of the satellite ground segments. Aside from that, we have a lot of projects being backed up via Bacula: R D and RADAR projects, FOC (Flight Operation Control, i.e. satellite operation planning, as well as command and control of satellites), and more… We do both full and incremental backup, as well as archives. All in all, we re very satisfied with Bacula. The software offers us a consistent, reliable, and powerful platform, and all of this without licensing costs.
