High performance, efficient replication to the Cloud starts with Bacula’s EC2 Module
Bacula provides advanced, fully integrated protection for EC2 – the broadest and deepest compute platform. Bacula’s superior elasticity, security and vast range of features allow you the architectural flexibility to add almost limitless in-cloud capabilities to your EC2 backup and recovery strategy. Bacula offers comprehensive backup and restore of any Virtual Machine deployment over Amazon Cloud.
How it Works:
Bacula’s EC2 technology works at the block level. This means that it can easily recover from a network failure during download or upload, as it will simply retry the impacted block. It can be used for any cloud deployment or in any use case, where the user needs to deploy virtual machines in the cloud.
Bacula’s Linux-based EC2 solution is extremely flexible regarding the options to select the target group of instances to backup. It is also especially flexible with restore options, where it is possible to choose all configuration options of the resulting instance to restore. It not only restores a new instance, but also restores only the data disks and attaches them to an existing instance.
