Hahahaha. I am actuall implementing Bacula as an interim solution before
the NBU hardware and software is PO'd! Ive used NBU extensively and I
would say the main difference is easy of use. The one thing I REALLY
miss is the gui. Also if you want clients for Oracle, MSSQL, MySQL,
Domino, Exchange - NBU is the way ya wanna go.

Subject: [Bacula-users] Comparison with commercial software
Is there any comparison information available between Bacula
and Veritas Netbackup?

I don't have a big comparison but I can say that I have a few licences
of veritas backup executive that I no longer use after I found bacula.
Basically with veritas I was tired of the extortion (all the needed
addons, need to buy server licenses for windows workstations and need
to upgrade when a new version of windows came out). And also I was
tired of the very poor free user support especially when the problems
I was having were their fault.
With bacula I have significantly better free user support. There is no
extortion - I can backup open files and databases and use an
autochanger without being extorted for addons. Also bacula gives me
the ability to backup what I want and a lot more flexibility in where
I can have my storage versus where the backup program runs.
