Barracuda Networks has announced the UK launch of its Barracuda Backup Service, a complete local and cloud-based data backup and disaster recovery solution for any size or type of business.
The Barracuda Backup Service is an affordable, integrated local and offsite data backup solution that combines the Barracuda Backup Server for rapid restoration on the local network with the Barracuda Backup Service, a secure cloud-based backup service hosted by two data centres in Europe.
“The Barracuda Backup Service is ideal for a fast growing company,” said Anjam Sohail Technical Director Uniq Systems Ltd. “I am excited to be able to offer this product to our clients and finally drop the tape drive with all the associated user problems. No other cloud-based storage solution comes close to matching Barracuda Networks for its tiny footprint, granularity of control and incredibly simple licensing model. With a relatively low start-up and running costs and its ability to provide an immediate response in an emergency it is the obvious choice”.
The Barracuda Backup Service provides a complete and affordable SME / SMB data backup solution from a single vendor. The Barracuda Backup Service can back up data directly from nearly all operating systems and comes included with backup software to natively provide application backups of Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL Server and Windows System State. The combination of inclusive backup software, integrated local storage, data de-duplication technology, and offsite cloud-based storage, found in the Barracuda Backup Service, leads to significantly simplified deployment and cost savings for customers.
“Customers in the UK, particularly those in the midmarket, have trended toward on-site solutions for data backup and recovery primarily due to security and privacy concerns,” said Carla Arend, program manager, IDC European Storage Software and Services Research. “Barracuda Networks’ approach in combining a server on site for fast restore of data locally as well as replicating data offsite should serve this market, as well as larger enterprise customers, very well because it has a very reasonable pricepoint and is backed by strong security for data protection.”
“The Barracuda Backup Service offers UK’s SMBs and SMEs access to enterprise-class data protection and disaster recovery at a fraction of the traditional cost,” said Michael Hughes, Barracuda Networks vice president of channels, EMEA. “Simple to use and occupying up to 1/50th of the normal backup storage footprint, customers are welcoming the Barracuda Backup Service for its convenience as much as for its exceptional value.”
