Barracuda Networks effects wide-spread augmentation in its data backup & recovery systems

Barracuda Networks, a quintessential networking major, has augmented its repertoire of data backup systems both in terms of capacity enhancement as well as software intelligence and efficiency. The new systems are designed to protect data for organizations facing increasing demands with limited resources, and offers IT administrators the ability to more efficiently plan for and support future data growth. The new Barracuda Backup appliances provide expanded capacity for physical appliance models, by as much as 100 percent more capacity on entry-level systems.
The capacity upgrades deliver a lower cost per Terabyte, and the performance enhancements allow customers to backup and replicate data faster, meet backup windows and get data offsite more efficiently, as well as the ability to restore faster in the event of data loss. These software performance updates are available at no additional cost to customers with active Energize Update subscriptions, and the new appliances are available to eligible customers with Instant Replacement subscriptions.
Allan Hurst, Partner & Director, Enterprise Strategy at KIS, a Barracuda Channel Partner , said, “Our customers trust us to recommend, implement and manage IT solutions that provide the best possible features and functionality for their businesses”. “When it comes to data protection, Barracuda backup always proves to be a great option for our customers because it takes care of the entire process with a single solution, is competitively priced, and is easy for us to deploy and manage”, added he.
As part of the appliance refresh, Barracuda Backup now includes performance updates that help customers backup, replicate and restore data at a faster rate. Additionally, 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections are now included with the Barracuda Backup 690, 790 and 890 appliances for a faster data transfer.
The augmented Barracuda backup is available as a physical appliances, as software in the form of virtual appliances, and as a cloud service, all centrally managed from the same web-based user interface.

Ability to fight Ransomware attacks
Barracuda Backup automatically creates updated backups as files are revised, and duplicates them to the secure Barracuda cloud. If criminals encrypt files with ransomware, once the malware is eliminated, the encrypted files can be deleted and then restored from a recent backup file.
“Performance is key in today’s age of rampant ransomware attacks, where an efficient data protection process is more critical than ever,” said Rod Mathews, Senior VP & GM, Data Protection at Barracuda. “Even with the best multi-layered security defense, having a recovery plan in place could be the only way to recover from these attacks without having to pay a ransom in order to restore data. Barracuda has a great track record in helping customers quickly and efficiently restore data, and these new enhancements underscore our ongoing efforts to help our customers support their data protection strategies simply and affordably”, added Mathews.
