Open Source Backup with Bareos: Architecture, Features and Bacula comparison

Track: OSDC 1

Bareos is a reliable network open source software to backup, archive and restore files from all major operating systems. The fork was founded 2010 out of the Bacula project. The fork has been actively developed and many new features have been added.

Today Bareos comes with LTO hardware encryption support, bandwidth limitation and handy new console commands. The enhanced storage daemon allows transparent backup replication 'Backup to disk to cloud' and eases the backup of DMZ clients with new 'passive client' concept. The source is available on Github and is licensed with AGPLv3. There are ready to install repositories for all major Linux distributions and windows installer packages as well as preconfigured virtual machine images from our nightly builds.

This talk gives a technical overview of Bareos architecture and features, explains the build and automated QA process and gives hints how to participate.
