Bareos Trainings in English

Rescue meIn two courses our training partner Dr. Stephan Rein shares his knowledge about the administration of the Open Source backup solution. The two online courses "Bareos Level 1 and Level 2" first took place in June, and due to several requests from our international partners they will now be held in English language. Since both workshops are half-day courses, this leaves enough time to cope with other daily work.
