File and folder backup

Linux file backup in Bacula is very easy and flexible. Bacula will always work with complete files while backing up Linux servers including permission, owner and group attributes.

Full and incremental backup

Linux incremental backup is supported in Bacula Enterprise. Using Progressive Virtual Full technology users can syndicate incremental backups into the new full backup. This sophisticated capability save storage space and backup time dramatically while improving your Linux backup efficiency.

With Bacula Enterprise you get the guarantee that the backups of Linux servers are carried out efficiently and completely complying with all the requirements that you have and adapting to the new ones that are generated, offering security, consistency, integrity and availability of the information.
