Default backups

New job, and I'm looking at backup software. Anyone who's used bacula, I'd appreciate comments on the system.

congrads

bacula works as advertised,
also look into amanda
or many variations of snap(vault/mirror/shot) that are out there

Thanks. At the moment, it's only a three-month contract, but it's work, *and* I'll get to add two *really* important acronyms to my resume, VMware and SAN. <g>

That's nice to know. I see it comparing itself to, say, Legato's NetWorker. How hard is it to set up?

>also look into amanda

I gather we want a console, rather than just scripting....

>or many variations of snap(vault/mirror/shot) that are out there

Mmmm... if that's SNAP backup, it looks like it's free for individual users, and we'll need it for serious network backups.

Thanks for such a quick reply!

Ok, I've *just* become aware of a new requirement, and that would seem to preclude, say, Bacula. This is that I *cannot* have a backup initiated from the repository server - it *must* be initiated client side. So, what am I looking at, amanda, or am I back to say, rsync and/or scp?

What if the client prods the repository server, which then starts a
backup?
