This aids IT directors with large or complicated IT environments seeking protection using a single backup and fast recovery platform.

Some of its cloud and storage and VM technologies are:

  • Protection for Microsoft365

  • Protection for Google Workspace

  • Azure VM Module

  • Nutanix AHV module

  • S3 Objects backup and recovery

  • Enhanced ‘Global Deduplication Endpoint’ engine

  • Azure, Google Storage and S3 tiers support

  • S3 storage tier control

Some security technologies in Enterprise V.16.0 are:

  • Storage Daemon Encryption

  • SIEM Integration

  • Security module dedicated to Windows

  • Automatic malware protection (backup, restore, verify)

  • Improved and enriched security metrics

  • SNMP Monitoring integration module

  • NFS Immutability support (NetApp SnapLock)

Andrue Netcher, BIT engineering manager, Warner Bros Discovery, Inc., said: “Bacula gives us the higher security backup and robustness we need for a live media broadcast environment. As a rule, the other backup systems we looked at were too complex. They had too much of what we didn’t need, and not enough of what we did need. This problem became worse when we looked at their pricing model”.

We see most companies looking to make significant improvements to their backup security while driving costs down, and we expect this need to increase into 2023. Bacula is well positioned to lead in this important and urgent change, using its Linux-based technology to push security levels to an altogether higher level in the industry,” said Frank Barker, CEO, Bacula.

Bacula’s high security architecture combines with its non-capacity-based licensing to scale to many thousands of users at a cost far below that of our competitors. Users benefit from its cloud-agnostic technology, its advanced protection against ransomware, its point in time recovery, and its compatibility with a vast range of different storage media. It provides native modules to back up more server virtualization products than any other backup vendor. When combined with Bacula’s advantageous licensing model, significant savings and performance increases are being seen by our military, government, ISV, and HPC customers, said Jorge Gea, CTO, Bacula.

Bacula Enterprise is a scalable BR solution that integrates with a wide range of VM, databases, clouds and containers. Users benefit from the expanded range of applications it protects natively within the cloud, such as Azure VM (image-level backup based on snapshots), Kubernetes clusters, and S3 data from any provider, Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace environments. The company’s cloud backup storage repository features complement its 4-cloud connectivity (Oracle, Google, Azure and Amazon S3), with its new S3 tier control for defining in the solution what cloud tier to use for each backup. It is also compatible with S3 Object Lock.

Company’s customers include NASA, Navisite, Texas A&M University, Sky PLC, Warner Bros, and Locaweb.
