Every year, an interministerial working group in France prepares and publishes the SILL list. The Socle Interministériel de Logiciels Libres is a reference list that recommends free and open source software solutions from a variety of fields, for example office and collaboration software, web browsers and mail clients. SILL also includes server applications such as DBMS, monitoring tools, web and mail servers.
Almost 150 applications are listed in 2018. The only entry in the category Sauvegarde Serveur (server backup) is Bareos (status R, recommandé = recommended). Bareos was also mentioned on the 2016 list. Back then the backup solution was listed with status O (en observation = under observation).
