Bareos supports all mainline NetApp products, including traditional filers (FAS), hybrid systems (HDD/SDD), and all-flash arrays (AFA), as well as S3-compatible targets like NetApp StorageGRID – an ideal solution for customers who are looking for an additional way to back-up their data, for example on external tape drives (physical and virtual), in another cloud or on their own hardware.
Bareos relies on a database backend (SQL) and uses that catalog to index files, volumes, and backup jobs, making it easy for the administrator to locate and restore the data. A scheduler can automatically schedule jobs and define the type of backup (full, incremental, differential). Using the NDMP protocol optimises the performance and reduces the load on storage systems, servers, and networks.
Founded in 2010, the Germany-based company Bareos GmbH & Co. KG and their partners offer professional subscription, support, consulting and co-funding of feature development. Worldwide, organisations across almost all sectors use Bareos. Our customers include public authorities and government departments, small and medium-sized enterprises as well as companies listed on the DAX and Fortune 500, e.g. telecommunications, cloud and internet service providers, the media, education, energy, finance, automotive and aerospace industries.
