Bacula Enterprise Room for Improvement

A more user-friendly interface (GUI) can be developed. 

I would also like a mobile application to manage the Bacula Enterprise environment where I could perform backups and restores directly from my cell phone or tablet. Relying solely on a desktop is a bit frustrating as its GUI isn't exactly responsive.

They need a clearer and faster restore screen to get the information about the data we want to restore; it's a little uncomfortable to find the files to restore on the current screens.

We would like to see an improvement in the functionality of the GUI.  

It can be a little tough if you are not very familiar with programming, editing a file by hand can create mistakes if the person doesn't know what they are doing.  They should let the GUI have more functionality in order to have someone not as experienced be able to administer the backups.  

Also, we would like to see Bacula be able to write to multiple tape drives in parallel. For example, sending a single backup over multiple tapes.

The initial setup could be a bit easier. It would be nice to have Oracle and SAP HANA plugins as well, means that we could directly backup and restore our databases using "expdp/impdp" (Oracle) or "export into/import from" (SAP) as it is possible on PostgreSQL via "pg_dump/pg_restore".

We are looking for a unique interface that can rule both enterprise and open source editions. Such a thing does not yet exist.
