Bacula Users & Partners Conference
Welcome to the first International Bacula Users & Partners Conference!

The Bacula Open Source project was started by Kern Sibbald in 2000 and released in 2002. Since then, it has been used by millions of people and corporations.

According to Source Forge statistics, Bacula quickly became by far the most popular Open Source backup program.

In 2008, Kern and 7 other passionate people, actively participating in this project, decided to found Bacula Systems with the aim to develop an Enterprise Edition of Bacula and offer professional support, consulting and training. Since then, Bacula Systems has shown great success among the corporate world and participated to the overall success of the Open Source adopted in enterprise, data centers, MSPs and public service.

To celebrate and reinforce the Open Source and Commercial Open Source strings, we are organizing the first International Bacula Users & Partners Conference!

If you are a developer or a user of Bacula, a Bacula Systems customer or Business Partner, a firm believer of Open Source, a specialist of Backup & Restore solutions or simply interested to understand how Bacula can advantageously replace proprietary solutions, this conference is for you! Entrance is free so come, meet, connect and share!
