Please consider the following scenario. You are the backup administrator. One day when you are outside the office and you are going home by bus your mobile phone starts ringing. You pick up the phone and you hear a quick nervous voice:

"Hey Tom! Mike here. By mistake I removed my important report! I need it now! In a couple of minutes I have a presentation. Do we have a backup? Are you able to restore it?!"

From the electronic equipment you only have a cell phone with you. Using it you logs in to the web interface of the backup software. You find appropriate backup to restore, you select Mike's report to restore and you run the restore directly to Mike's computer.

This scenario is quite possible. We can be anywhere and we can be asked about doing restore. If the only device that we have is the mobile phone the key point in our backup software is to have responsive web interface to be able do restore using small phone screen.

You can try to do it with Bacularis which provides fully responsive the Bacula web interface. Every single web interface element is tuned to be responsive in Bacularis. This way using mobile device you can easily run backup, prepare restore, do administration tasks, configure the Bacula environment, create jobs and much more.
