Bareos (Backup Archiving Recovery Open Sourced)

Bareos is an open-source backup solution that provides data backup, recovery, and protection. It evolved from the Bacula project after a modification of its licensing policies. The software offers features like incremental backups, encryption, compression, and tape or disk storage support. Bareos also has customizable reporting functionalities and standardized protocols allowing it to integrate with existing infrastructure without vendor lock-in issues. As an open-source system it can be adapted to different operating systems such as Linux, Unix-like systems like macOS and Windows platforms without incurring additional costs for licensing fees.
