Bacula Systems: Commercial Support for Backup Program

Oct 15, 2008

Members of the Swiss Bacula community have created Bacula Systems SA, a new company that will offer professional support and services for the backup program.

According to Sibbald, Bacula Systems is a response to user requests for professional support and he intends to achieve this via a new partner-network. The first cooperation is with French Linux distributor Mandriva, who will act as re-seller for Bacula subscriptions and will incorporate the free backup program in it’s Linux distribution. One of Bacula Systems first customers is the Bank of Austria, who in a press release, praised Bacula for its high reliability and low costs.
