Archives of the Bavarian State
The Archives of the Bavarian State (Germany) have preserved records (e.g. charters, files, maps) generated by the government respectively administration of Bavaria and its predecessors since the introduction of writing (the oldest charter dates from 777).
The administration uses Bareos to backup Windows based desktop clients as well as Linux based archive servers that host numerous high resolution scanned historical documents.
"Using Bareos, we could implement an integrated and fully automatic backup-concept, which covers numerous sources with completely different requirements to retention times and backup-cycles. The regional Bareos partner provided us advice and support in this matter. With their help we could set up the system very flexibly, so that it is possible at any time to extend the configuration and document all settings automatically. Thanks to our Bareos subscription and support we feel up to future challenges."
