Coming out on top of an IDC Worldwide Quarterly PBBA Tracker means that Barracuda Backup has momentum around the world. Customers have confidence in this product, for good reason:
- Barracuda Backup is a complete cloud-integrated solution for protecting physical and virtual environments that includes software, appliance, and offsite replication. No integration of, or debug struggles with, multiple vendor backup technologies.
- Dispersed organizations get the benefit of managing their entire network of Barracuda Backup appliances, regardless of location, via a single cloud-based management console, simplifying global data protection.
- Barracuda evolved the Cloud beyond a compelling metered backup storage medium with unlimited cloud storage plans, Cloud LiveBoot of virtual machines, and on-demand user access to files via Copy (www.copy.com) file sync and share. The Barracuda Cloud provides benefits beyond traditional cloud offerings.
- Initial deployment of a backup appliance can take as little as 15 minutes. Barracuda’s simple yet powerful web interface enables quick set up and provides a complete view of all machines in the global network. Intuitive GUIs with multiple levels enable detailed control and analysis of performance without complexity.
- The Barracuda Backup appliance’s local cache scales from 500 GB to more than 100 TB. Offsite vaulting allows longer-term backups to be stored only in the cloud, freeing cache space for more daily and weekly backups and extending appliance life. A maintained Instant Replacement subscription lets organizations replace their appliances every four years with a new Barracuda appliance.
