|Bacula ® - The Open Source Network Backup Solution|
Certain rumors have it that the Bacula project appears
to be dead and all the developers have gone over to a fork. This is
highly exaggerated. The project is advancing with many new features
that will be release in the March-April time frame. One former
Bacula developer has gone to the new release. I am in touch with many
former and current developers who are all fully supportive of the Bacula
If you want more details on these unfounded rumors, please click on the Blog menu item, which will take you to our new Bacula website which is currently under construction, and thus at the moment, incomplete. Our objective is to switch to the new website in the March-April time frame to correspond to the new release.
Bacula is a set of Open Source, computer programs that permit you (or the system administrator) to manage backup, recovery, and verification of computer data across a network of computers of different kinds. Bacula is relatively easy to use and efficient, while offering many advanced storage management features that make it easy to find and recover lost or damaged files. In technical terms, it is an Open Source, network based backup program.
According to Source Forge statistics (rank and downloads), Bacula is by far the most popular Open Source program backup program.
The Documentation link takes you to a page where you can access all the available Bacula documentation (HTML, PDF, and TGZ) both for the officially released version and for the current code under development in the Source Forge GIT. The development version of the manual typically has more documentation, but may also document new features that are not in the released version. The Developer's Guide presents important information for users who want to contribute to the Bacula project.
Bacula is released on SourceForge at http://sourceforge.net/projects/bacula where you can download the software.
