Bacula Enterprise: Functionality. Convenience. Efficiency.
Client Initiated Backup with Bacula Enterprise Edition
Now Bacula Enterprise Edition brings more control and flexibility than ever before. Version 8.6’s brand new Client Initiated Backup feature adds to a huge breadth of functionality, bringing independence to end-users and enabling non-technical individuals to choose what data to backup and when regarding their own PC’s and laptops. This convenient feature facilitates higher levels of productivity and safety within an Enterprise or MSP.
The Client Initiated Backup feature is easily accessed via the tray monitor, and provides a simple GUI for end-users to manage specific backup of their own data.
Parameters include choosing the backup job, and specifying date and time.
Advanced parameters are: level of backup, selection of the client to backup from, the FileSet, Pool and priority settings.
Using either GUI (BWeb Management Suite™) or a command line interface, Enterprise Editions’ Client Initiated Backup means System Administrators can now manage complex network configurations using:
- Bacula Director centralized model
