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 best of breed technical support that guarantees resolution times and service level agreements.

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.
