Bacula Systems has added fast and complete disaster recovery capability to its Bacula Enterprise Edition 4.0.

The company has announced its Linux bare metal restore feature, which also complements Bacula Systems' existing bare metal recovery for Windows systems.

Bacula Systems provides commercial open source backup and restore software. Its new release offers a highly scalable, modern, open source backup and restore solution to the enterprise.

Companies can pay a small additional cost to use the Linux Bare Metal Restore capability available with Bacula Enterprise Edition. This capability, says Bacula Systems, has the ability to support LVM, software raid (mdadm), and provides the ability to clone machines.

It can also be used for physical to virtual or virtual to physical restore.

Bacula Systems is also encouraging users to download the recently upgraded Bacula Enterprise Edition 4.0 for trial. Version 4.0 has many features including BWeb Enterprise Management Center to manage multiple data centers, and scalability up to thousands of servers and clients.

A large number of organizations such as Denmark's commercial Web hosting and domain provider ScanNet are using Bacula Systems' Subscription services and enterprise-class solution for modernizing their IT environment and drive costs down.

"We needed to find a highly scalable product with modern architecture, that reduced costs and was fast enough to fit our backup windows, so Bacula was the best backup product we could use," said Tove Kristensen, director of IT, ScanNet.

"Bacula Systems offers the most scalable open source backup product in the market today, and frees the enterprise from vendor lock-in." said Kern Sibbald CTO, Bacula Systems. "Our offering gives you all the advantages of a quality product without being forced to pay the outrageous licensing fees typical of today's proprietary backup vendors."
