Bacula Systems’ new Enterprise Edition 8.8 introduces low cost data restore from the cloud; significantly reduces backup and recovery times while reducing data centers’ exposure to costs

YVERDON-LES-BAINS, Switzerland, October 31, 2016 — / — Continuing to lead in high performance backup and restore for large enterprises and managed services providers, Bacula Systems today announced Bacula Enterprise Edition 8.8, featuring cloud integration with an exclusive Minimal Restore Cost (MRC) functionality. This new cloud compatibility, combined with special cloud management tools, provides data centers with the most integrated cloud-based backup and restore solution for their entire physical and virtual environments regardless of architecture – all from a single platform. Bacula Systems customers include NASA, Texas A&M University, Swisscom, Bank Austria and many more.

Bacula Enterprise Edition 8.8 is a highly scalable backup and recovery software for data centers and MSP’s. Directly answering the IT industry’s challenge of exploding data volume with a low cost subscription model that does not charge by data volume, Bacula System’s latest software release with integrated cloud features makes it far easier to predict costs – especially when recovering data from the cloud. It builds further on an especially customizable and flexible backup and restore solution that is relevant to both modest and large sized data centers.

The main features of Bacula Enterprise Edition 8.8 are:

  • Integrated backup and restore with both public and private clouds via the S3 interface
  • Granular control over data that needs to be restored from the cloud, significantly reducing operational exposure to cloud costs and boosting business agility
  • A broad range of functionality throughout the entire platform designed to integrate physical and virtual environments with public, private and hybrid cloud data transfers, allowing more predictable costs
  • Faster backup and restores to and from the cloud, at the lowest cost

“Because of the way cloud costs are structured, data centers need a new way to manage data recovery from the cloud. As physical, virtual and cloud combined backup strategies become more commonplace, the opportunity to have a single backup and recovery platform that can do it all is proving especially attractive to large enterprises, research laboratories, large hosting centers, and universities around the world, who need to find modern solutions that both limit costs and increase the predictability of costs” said Frank Barker, CEO, Bacula Systems.
