Enterprise tape backup software from Bacula Systems. Reliable tape backup solutions for Windows and Linux with broad device support.
Bacula Enterprise’s unique architecture means that it works (completely) with practically all types of tapes and tape drives.
Tape backup software has been used for a long time as one of the fundamental strategies for information protection in enterprise organizations. Despite some vendors stating that ‘tape is dead’, tape backup still continues to be a key technology in enterprise backup. The main reason for this is the sheer reliability of the backup tape. Continuing backup to tape modernization brings increasing performance and capacity, while lowering cost per GB of data stored. This has also allowed to obtain longer periods of validity of the stored data. Backup to tape portability and ease of migration to other locations, remote or local, are important elements in the implementation of disaster recovery and high availability environments.
Many system administrators and IT directors discuss the pros and cons of both backup to tape and disk. However, a balanced backup and recovery strategy brings disk and tape backup solutions together. One of the examples of using tape backup solutions is transferring the 60-180 days disk backups to (lower cost) tapes or even to low-cost disk and then tape (D2D2T).
Since its beginning in the year 2000, Bacula has used backup to tape as one of its fundamental features, embracing many different types of existing and emerging tape backup hardware.
