«Bacula Systems support services are very high quality»

Bacula Systems recognizes the importance of world-class technical support. We offer six levels of subscription: Lite, Standard, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum, all including comprehensive support benefits and access to the official Bacula Enterprise Edition binaries.

The minimum subscription level is determined by the number of platforms (Operating Systems) to be backed up, combined with the number of Bacula Systems clients (servers and clients to be backed up), desired response time and necessary access to Deduplication technology, plugins, administrative tools, PostgreSQL catalog support or professional services. Our prices are extremely competitive because you only need one subscription (per installed Director). To know the annual price for each subscription, please contact us as it can vary based on your Backup & Restore project as well as your specific needs. We offer lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and faster return on investment (ROI) than an equivalent proprietary solution for Backup and Data Recovery.

To MSPs: a dedicated pricing model, taking into account your business specificity, is available upon request. Please contact us to discuss.
