First, a little background. Having written several articles regarding Bacula, I’ve seen the potential but also the limitation of the written medium. In the articles, there are several things that I wanted to add but couldn’t due to space constraints. I also believe that the audiovisual approach lends itself better to convey the information. With that in mind, I have outlined what I want to capture in the first course.
I’ll start with a overview of the Bacula components, how they interact, and what their roles are. Then I’ll go through the steps of installing the software. Once installed, I’ll go through how to configure clients to backup from, using various operating systems such as Windows, Linux and Mac OS. Then, I’ll look at approaches on what to store, where to store, how to store it and finally retention policies. Implementing various backup jobs and schedules and finally restoring the data wraps up the first course. Lastly, I am planning to structure each course into smaller videos, each lasting 5-10 mins depending on what needs to be covered. Some details may change as I progress with the course and I will also take into account any feedback from you.
This is where your help is needed…
I’m looking for some volunteers that are willing to fill out a questionnaire and provide feedback in exchange for free access to the course. You do not have to have any prior experience in Bacula, only your willingness to answer some questions within a reasonable time after the release of a video.
The first 50 people who fill out the form below will get free lifetime access to the course, both the beta and final version. I’ll provide regular updates on the progress of the course, and how to access the videos once they launch.
