Barracuda Networks today launched the Barracuda Backup Server 990 with 24 terabytes of internal storage, making it the ideal on-premises solution for organizations requiring local backup for large volumes of data. Now available in six models and combined with the Barracuda Backup Subscription to provide offsite backup storage in the cloud, the Barracuda Backup Service is the most complete backup and disaster recovery solution available for organizations today.
The Barracuda Backup Service firmware 3.0 features more efficient backup transfer methods by better utilizing the available bandwidth between the backup server and the cloud. The Barracuda Backup Service now provides new data deduplication functionality for Windows server backups.
The Barracuda Backup Service now offers full open file backup support which allows administrators to back up files that have been locked by the operating system for improved data protection. The Barracuda Backup Service also increases the efficiency of the local network by starting the deduplication process at the agent, eliminating the need to send as much network traffic across the local network.
Formerly restricted to Windows system support for Windows Server 2003 and 2008, upgrades to the Barracuda Backup Agent software now support Windows 7 and provide full system backup and restore.
The Barracuda Backup Server 890 is increasing in capacity from six terabytes of storage to eight and the Barracuda Backup Server 690 is increasing in capacity from three terabytes of storage to four.
