Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Yesterday we talked about what you can do to celebrate and spread the message of Worldwide Backup Day.   Today we're celebrating our own unofficial “Backup Day” by announcing some updates to our Barracuda Backup product line.  You can get all the details in this press release, but here's a quick summary:

  Purpose-built backup appliances (PBBAs)
are standalone systems purpose built to
serve as a target for backup and
include features such as deduplication,
compression, encryption, remote
replication, and support interfaces.

Barracuda Backup Vx

The award-winning, purpose-built Barracuda Backup is one of the most versatile and flexible data protection options available.  It can be deployed as a physical or virtual appliance, or as a cloud-to-cloud solution.

The Barracuda Backup Vx can now be purchased as a per-socket subscription for virtual hosts, including software replication.  This is a software solution that can be deployed on VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V, and includes the same integrated backup functionality as the physical Barracuda Backup physical appliance.

Barracuda Backup Vx also includes a new metered Barracuda Cloud Storage plan.  Barracuda customers can deploy this virtual appliance with built-in data redundancy and the ability to move data out of the cloud without additional bandwidth charges.

Cloud-to-Cloud Backup

Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup can now be purchased as a standalone per-user subscription.  It is also available as part of Barracuda Essentials for Office 365, which bundles it with message archiving and email protection.

Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup allows customers to restore access to their cloud data from accidental deletion or malicious attacks.

New models for increased storage options

We have two new large-scale models to meet the needs of users who require additional capacity.  The Barracuda Backup 790 offers 12TB of useable capacity in a 2U form factor, configured with 6x4TB RAID 10.   The Barracuda Backup 895 offers 24TB usable capacity in a 3U form factor.  It is configured with 12X3TB RAID 60.  Both models have hot swappable disks and power supplies.  Like all of our Barracuda Backup appliances, these new models also include centralized management, local and cloud LiveBoot, and many more features.  You can get more details on the specifications of our Barracuda Backup appliances in this data sheet.  (pdf)

“Barracuda Backup provides our organization with the flexibility to manage our backup and recovery needs in a way that makes the most sense for us,” said Ken Kula, Partner and CFO at Eleven Inc. “Not only is Barracuda a great fit on the technology end, Barracuda also simplifies the pricing, deployment and management processes by covering all the pieces of backup and recovery with a single vendor solution.”

Evolution and innovation

Data protection methods have been evolving for decades, from punch cards and magnetic tape to the cloud and purpose built appliances we have now.  There was tremendous innovation within each of these methods, bringing us new formats like LTO or new hardware like Network Attached Storage.  Barracuda is also committed to innovation that drives our technology forward.  Here are just a few of the many advancements we've made in our backup solutions over the years:

Our backup solutions have evolved with the needs of our customers.  Businesses have been working hard to keep up with Big Data, shrinking IT budgets, increased mobility, BYOD, and more.  Barracuda has been on this journey with them, offering powerful, affordable, and easy-to-use backup solutions to help them stay competitive and stay in business.
