At Barracuda we have always strived to make great products that deliver ease of use and affordability. We are constantly evaluating our product portfolio in the context of our overall strategic goals. With that in mind, we have begun a process to focus our resources on our most strategic initiatives and to drive more innovation and faster growth within those products.
As such, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue our Copy and CudaDrive services. We certainly do not take this lightly, and we appreciate the millions of customers who have used the service, as well as the hard work and dedication of our product team over the past 4+ years.
While this is a big change, the path forward is an exciting one, as the CudaDrive engineering team will be joining forces with the Barracuda Backup team to accelerate the key initiatives for that product line. There is a huge amount of opportunity in Backup, Data Protection and Business Continuity features in the cloud, and adding the talented people from the CudaDrive team will allow us to more quickly and efficiently deploy new features and satisfy market and customer demands. The combined teams are a very impressive group, and we will be able to deliver much more to our backup customers and partners going forward.
We will continue to work hard to support our users through this transition, and have put together a detailed plan to ensure that we take care of all of our partners and customers in the manner for which Barracuda is known.
