Rsync or Bacula?

That was the question posed on linkedin:

Rsync or Bacula?

A short answer and a middle point:


It can use rsync with all its functionalities, you get a web interface for management,compression, pooling, multiple schedules, differential/incremental/full backups, win a lot of disk space and a security interface.
I use it for my home servers as well for my companies one (managing more or less 50 servers (windows/Linux) and it works like a charm.
The Best of it… it’s open source and have a lot of community support for it.

Ps – if you can run it over solaris with ZFS… even better 😉

Who’s Pedro Oliveira

Pedro Oliveira

My name is Pedro Oliveira, I’m a Linux fan and enthusiast for the last 18 years. Apart from that I’m a System Architect / Technical manager.

I’ve done projects in several countries (Portugal, USA, Mexico, UK, Spain, Angola, Netherlands, etc). I’ve also been blessed to live for extended periods in some of them.

With this blog I expect to share some of my experiences while working in heterogeneous environments (MS, Linux, Solaris, etc) and some other skills and visions I have on different matters.

This may include thoughts about football, hobbies (like radio controlled stuff).
