What is Bareos?

Bareos (Backup Archiving Recovery Open Sourced) is a reliable, cross-network open source software for backup, archiving and recovery of data for all well-established operating systems. Emerged from the Bacula Project in 2010, Bareos was and is actively developed as a fork and enriched with lots of new features.

Thus Bareos today offers among other features LTO hardware encryption, bandwidth limitation and new practical console commands. The source code of Bareos is available on https://github.com/bareos/ under the AGPL v3 license. Additionally Bareos offers binary package repositories for the most important Linux distributions as well as for Windows.

What are the advantages of Bareos?

Bareos is developed under the AGPL v3 open source license. What does this mean for you as a customer?

For sure it is possible to install Bareos easily on your systems by using binary packages, without the need to deal with the source code. But the nice thing is, you could!

And this is the decisive advantage. The openness of the systems makes it possible for you to adapt the software to your needs - without usage restrictions by proprietary licenses. That makes you independent and gives you a safe investment. Another advantage are the continuous enhancements of Bareos contributed by an active community.
