Expanding its leadership in high security backup and recovery for HPC and demanding IT environments, Bacula Systems today announced new features designed specifically for HPC customers. Bacula is also proud to announce partnerships with many of the industrys leading performance storage providers.

"Bacula is the only solution capable of handling billions of files in extremely high-throughput applications. Baculas participation in the ISC Hamburg exhibition demonstrates its full commitment to helping HPC customers save time and considerable costs" said Gopal RajGuru, Bacula CEO.

Enhancing Baculas exceptionally broad storage and Cloud compatibility, a new lock function has been added to align the immutable status of backup data with the backup retention configured in Bacula. Baculas Cloud Storage Class is now also configurable in Azure, Oracle and Google. This allows precise control over where to store each backup set, using any kind of criteria, directly from Bacula without touching the destination Cloud storage configuration.

Bacula helps HPC customers automate complex tasks with a new Large Backup File Split feature, which speeds the back up of large numbers of files by splitting the workload into concurrent backup processes in a simple, smart and automatic way. This saves HPC customers significant amounts of time for very large datasets, and Bacula automatically manages the backup to any file-server or NAS.

Bacula also reduces the possibility of human error by eliminating the need for a configuration update process. This is particularly useful when many users create complex folder structures with lots of different files where the distribution of the data varies dynamically in an unpredictable way said Jorge Gea, CTO of Bacula Systems.


Bacula is also delighted to announce a number of new strategic partnerships with the most high-performance and secure storage specialists to build on its growing momentum in the HPC industry, including:

ExaGrid: ExaGrid provides Tiered Backup Storage with a unique disk-cache Landing Zone, long-term retention repository and scale-out architecture. ExaGrids Landing Zone provides for the fastest backups, restores, and instant VM recoveries. The Repository Tier offers the lowest cost for long-term retention. ExaGrids scale-out architecture includes full appliances and ensures a fixed-length backup window as data grows, eliminating expensive forklift upgrades and product obsolescence. ExaGrid offers comprehensive security and is the only two-tiered backup storage approach with a non-network-facing tier, delayed deletes, and immutable objects to recover from ransomware attacks. Combined with the power of Bacula Enterprise, ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage provides a backup solution for HPC organizations with the highest performance, security, and scalability at the best price.
