Bareos Level 1 and Level 2

What is Bareos?

Bareos (Backup Archiving Recovery Open Sourced) is a reliable, cross-network open source software for backup, archiving and recovery of data for all well-established operating systems. Emerged from the Bacula Project in 2010, Bareos was and is actively developed as a fork and enriched with lots of new features.

Thus Bareos today offers among other features LTO hardware encryption, bandwidth limitation and new practical console commands. The source code of Bareos is available on under the AGPL v3 license. Additionally Bareos offers binary package repositories for the most important Linux distributions as well as for Windows.

    Mr. C. from Red Hat Czech participated the part I Bareos training in January 2021:

    The course was wonderful – especially the desaster recovery part. For me it is a perfect timing as I will be one of the responsible backup admins. I liked the provided system from as it nicely allowed the remote training and testing via SSH.

    Mr. P. from the data center of University Augsburg participated in January 2021 in the international Bareos Training Part I:

    I found the course super good. Very good selection of subjects. The relationships between the individual parts (e.g. job defs, schedule) were nicely explained.

    Mr. R. from the Internet Service Provider Eurotux Informatica (Lisbon, Portugal) participated the International Bareos course at with one of his colleagues in Sept. 2020:

    It was a very nice presentation with exercises in the middle of each chapter. For me everything was very good, especially the praxis parts.

    Mr M. participated the first Bareos Online Class in summer 2020 together with 2 of his collegues from the German Federal Office for Information Security:

    I found it good in principle. Has given me good insight. I also liked that you looked into problems (via SSH). So I really enjoyed it. You may be able to adjust the formatting so that commands can be better taken over by copy & paste.

    Mr. S. from T-Systems International participated in November 2019 with 2 of his collegues. They spent 4 days with in the Berlin Innovation Park:

    I honestly say that I really liked the structure of the course. I’ve learned a lot.

    Mr. B. from Berlin Hosting-Provider SysEleven participated in Summer 2019 in Level II:

    It was definitely worth it for me. The topics that are relevant to us were dealt with. Extremely much hands-on on every subject. Short theory part and then do it.
