Bacula4 is pleased to announce 2 new Key Features for our DCE/Self Hosted customers.
New Linux ReaR BMR
PLEASE NOTE - Legacy BMR will be EOL March 31st 2016 and will be completely removed from your installs
Action Required - Please enter the wizard for each of your linux servers, unselect BMR Legacy and select Linux BMR (ReaR). Save the wizard. Thats it, you are done. All new restore points will be enabled with the new Linux ReaR BMR moving forward. If you have any issues with the wizard, or you are running an unsupported OS, you can manually install ReaR packages for your OS, and then enter and save the wizard - our system will configure everything for you.

Our New Linux ReaR BMR can also be used to facilitate server migrations. You can Read more about this HERE
New Progressive Full Technology
Bacula4 is pleased to announce a new Progressive Full technology. You can read more about this HERE
We do recommend that you switch your servers with the appropriate retention periods over to the new Progressive Full technology (as described in article above). In the near future, this option will be the default, and customers can manually select different "full" options if they have specific requirements to do so (ie retention periods over 3-6 months for example, we would recommend the more traditional "virtual full" or regular "full" methods)
