"Bacula – Bacula is said to be the premiere enterprise-ready backup solution for those needing to pull out the big guns in keeping their data secure. The plus side is its power. This is one of the best methods of backing up servers and workstations in an enterprise setting. Despite its power however, it's not for the casual user, as you will be knee-deep in documentation before its first run. It's powerful, but also rather complex to use.

"Amanda– I've always felt like that if you're looking for enterprise backup without looking to roll up a solution from scratch, Amanda is a great option. It's most definitely easier to use than Bacula and I don't believe that Amanda uses MySQL/PostgreSQL for its backups. This alone can be a huge benefit. Like Bacula, Amanda is best suited for enterprise users looking for a professional backup solution. Amanda is also network backup friendly.

"Mondo Rescue– Like most enterprise backup solutions, Mondo Rescue provides great support for network backups, tape drives and other enterprise backup needs. It should also be noted that some very big name companies use Mondo due to its enterprise ready dependability. After a disastrous loss of data, you can restore everything that was lost or just as much as you choose."
