Re: Bacula: backups that don't suck

1. I'd need the capability of bare metal restore

Bacula has a bare metal restore, but unfortunately, it works on RH type distros and doesn't work on Debian.
However I hopt to correct that in the next release or two.

2. What also would help me sell it would to have CDP (Continuous Data Protection) our current solution also has that

No, Bacula does not have CDP, and it probably will not for the next few releases ...

Also what is the status of the windows version? I got the impression of some licensing weirdness with it.

It is weird only because we use Volume Shadow Copy (VSS -- i.e. open file backup) and VSS uses Microsoft code that is
forbidden for us to release. However, we show you how to get Microsoft's code if you *really* want to build the Win32 FD from
source. All *our* code is GPLv2 ...
