We haven't had issues with it.""This product is flexible enough to allow for backing up data from physical machines, as well as from your cloud environment."

Cons
"Bacula needs a graphical user interface because, for administrators, the command-line interface is okay, but for the average user it is not very easy.""We are looking for a unique interface that can rule both enterprise and open source editions. Such a thing does not yet exist.""Easier setup and configuration, perhaps including a GUI, would be an improvement.""The initial setup could be a bit easier."

More Bacula Enterprise Cons →

"I do not really like NetBackup as it is coming from a mix of other software packages.""We want a solution that can be scaled-out because our data is growing very quickly, and we aren't able to back it up quickly. It takes one or two days, which is a problem. It is very slow. We just use one backup server. We want another solution with maybe a backup server cluster to back up more data in one day. We want a solution that can be scaled-out to back up our data quickly and efficiently.""The flip side about NetBackup is that it is not policy-based.""It would be extremely helpful if the solution offered near-zero recovery time for SQL.""When the customer is using SaaS applications like Office 365, the integration falls short and needs to be improved.""In regards to protecting the physical servers with parameters, it's a long and difficult process.""The pricing is a bit of a concern. If could be lower.""The user interface could improve, it seems a bit out of date."
