Bacula Status Report — 22 June 2018

We recently released prebuilt binaries on bacula.org, and some of you have downloaded them and had varying degrees of luck installing them. Concerning the installation of Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic Beaver), I have personally installed, configured and run it, including running with the Aligned plugin, and from the brief testing I did, it works well. However, I did notice a few errors in the installation guide, which I have corrected in version 1.3 of the guide.

Testimonials

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.
