I would use FreeBSD (and I do use FreeBSD for bacula, now bareos backup 
server and storage hosts), it has really small "footprint", and it is 
quite widespread.

Incidentally, I was using bacula for very long time, but recently I 
switched to bacula's fork: bareos. You may want to consider the 
differences before you finalized everything in stone.
