Try out Bacula Enterprise Edition

Start testing with either our Kickstart standalone Trial or a full-fledged copy of Bacula Enterprise Edition for 30 days and see by yourself why Enterprise Open Core products are superior to proprietary solutions for disk and tape backup solutions.

We also offer the possibility to test our solution via the Try & Buy offer; this testing method allows you to test our software and technical support during a period of 1 month, to then continue to use it for the next 11 months, all under the normal subscription umbrella. One main advantage of the Try & Buy offer is that you don’t need to re-install the Bacula Enterprise Edition infrastructure after the test, hence  you can continue as it is set up to use it in your production environment!

To go with the Try & Buy offer, please contact us.
