[nycbug-talk] Backups: Bacula vs. Amanda

Hi all,

Anyone here evaluated both of these lately?  Quite some time ago I did, 
and found Amanda to be the winner...  These days though I'm finding that 
Amanda has been getting really buggy (at least on FreeBSD) and more full 
of linuxisms since the Zmanda folks took over development.

Looking through the Bacula docs, it looks pretty decent.  I barely 
remember why I disqualified it 4 or 5 (or maybe 6) years ago...

Any input on these two packages is appreciated.  Or if there's something 
else out there I haven't heard of, I'd like to know about it.
