Enterprise Edition Comparison with Community Version

Bacula Community version compared with Enterprise Edition

Bacula Enterprise Edition is the Leading Open Core network backup and restore solution and is intended for production deployments. Enterprise Edition provides advanced, self-contained and quality assured software that does not require in-house resources for development and test. Bacula Systems professional support offers some of the highest quality technical support in the industry, that puts you immediately in touch with a senior expert, and guarantees first response time based on service level agreement. Bacula community version is suited for evaluation or pre-production use. If chosen for corporate use, the community version requires internal resources to manage release cycles, test, support and add advanced capabilities to the basic functionality available in this version.

See by yourself why Enterprise Open Core products are superior to proprietary solutions for disk and tape backup solutions in both physical and virtual environments. The Trial gives you access to all Bacula Enterprise Edition version 8 features, VSS plugin, BWeb Management Suite and Global Endpoint Deduplication™. If you need to use other plugins we also offer the possibility to test our solution via the Try and Buy offer. The Selective Migration Plan allows a smooth and beneficial upgrade path from Community and other open source backup solutions to Enterprise Edition.
