Bacula: Take Control of Your Cloud Data Backup Strategy

Bacula Enterprise has just extended its native cloud integration to Google Cloud and Oracle Cloud, complementing its S3, S3IA and Azure interfaces. Users have a complete, advanced backup and recovery strategy that covers their entire physical, virtual and Cloud environments. All from one single platform. 

Bacula’s approach to the Cloud is smarter than its competitors, with the ability to manage network bandwidth when moving data into the cloud, and concurrent asynchronous upload and download of backup data to and from the Cloud. It gives multiple bucket support in a single storage daemon, and configuration of each bucket to suit the user’s personal needs. 

But perhaps the most important thing to know is that Bacula does not charge by data volume. So instead of being held to ransom by your current backup vendor, why not discover why so many datacenters are suddenly switching to Bacula? Get in touch with us now, or take a look at the free trial!

Red Hat: Agentless Backup for Red Hat Virtualization

Bacula Enterprise Edition has agentless integration with a high number of different hypervisors. Now, it also offers native integration and new functionality for backup and recovery of Red Hat Virtualization.

Providing image backup done outside the Red Hat Virtualization environment, the module allows Bacula to perform backup and recovery entirely independently of the hypervisor. It increases backup flexibility, efficiency and offers lower related costs for users of Red Hat Virtualization at scale. Its functionality provides the following benefits:

• Agentless backup of RHV environments
• Completely agnostic to Vdisk storage backend
• Powerful selection and exclusion mechanisms for fine control
• Transparent quiescing and snapshot creation
• Restore flexibility: to a different cluster/storage
• Restore to existing or new virtual instances
• Configuration of restored virtual machines on the fly

By the way, did you know Bacula Enterprise also includes significant extensions to its range of Cloud interoperability, adding Google Cloud and Oracle Cloud to its already-available Azure and AWS interfaces? Bacula Enterprise is one of the most flexible backup solutions in the world and now applies its especially wide range of features to Red Hat Virtualization. Download the Red Hat Virtualization datasheet now or get in touch with us for more details.
