As a System Administrator you will be always worried about the backups of your users as well as servers. The commercial backup solutions are some times little costly which may not be affordable for small companies.

I always preferred open source products for backups which works absolutely fine for me. when we select an open source software we should keep few points in our mind such as, support, reliability of the software.  Barcula is an open source Network Backup Software which is reliable and easy to configure.

“Bacula is a set of Open Source, enterprise ready, computer programs that permit you (or the system administrator) to manage backup, recovery, and verification of computer data across a network of computers of different kinds. Bacula is relatively easy to use and efficient, while offering many advanced storage management features that make it easy to find and recover lost or damaged files. In technical terms, it is an Open Source, enterprise ready, network based backup program. “
