Cons
"We are looking for a unique interface that can rule both enterprise and open source editions. Such a thing does not yet exist.""Bacula needs a graphical user interface because, for administrators, the command-line interface is okay, but for the average user it is not very easy.""Easier setup and configuration, perhaps including a GUI, would be an improvement."

More Bacula Enterprise Cons »

"When you use Data Domain, you have to have at least 20% free space so it can work properly. Sometimes we struggle with that, because we wanted to use all the free space, but then Data Domain becomes really slow. I understand that 20% is needed to process all the data, and doing the duplication and compression and all that, but it would be a big improvement if they did not require that 20%, because it is just too much to have available.""The size and scale of the product are limited and could be improved.""Its management can be improved.""They need to make migration easier.""I would like to see integration with public cloud.""It can probably have integration with other OEMs. It should also have more features for ransomware protection.""First-time integrations are difficult in NetWorker. NetWorker software needs to be simplified. It's very complex.""I would like to see better integration and support for backing up to cloud providers such as Alibaba Cloud."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This is an open-source solution.""We have a perpetual license."

More Bacula Enterprise Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Its price is reasonable.""It could be more competitively priced. Its licensing was for five years. Obviously, the support will get renewed at some stage, but that's it.""The price is on the high side."
