The Barracuda Backup Service is a complete and affordable data backup solution. The Barracuda Backup Server provides a full local data backup and then replicates that data offsite. This hybrid approach provides the best of both worlds - local backups via a dedicated appliance for great performance and restore times, and disaster recovery data protection through secure cloud storage at Barracuda Networks. Data deduplication is applied inline at a block level to reduce traditional backup storage requirements by 20 to 50 times while also reducing backup windows and bandwidth requirements.
Designed for organizations of various size and need, the Barracuda Backup Server maintains a local copy of data and efficiently transfers the data offsite without placing additional burden on production servers. Offsite cloud storage at Barracuda Networks is monitored and managed by Barracuda Central as part of the monthly Barracuda Backup Subscription. In the event that all data backed up is not equally business critical, the Barracuda Backup Service makes it easy to select the data that needs to be stored offsite for disaster recovery. The Barracuda Backup Service includes technical support and emergency assistance with restores in the event of a system failure or disaster. Deployed in varied and complex IT environments, the Barracuda Backup Service protects mission-critical business information. The Barracuda Backup Agent software for Windows, included with the Barracuda Backup Service, provides complete native backup of Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft SQL Server, Windows system state and Windows file system data. In addition to the software agent backup, the Barracuda Backup Server supports other backup methods natively without installing any additional software or agents. The Barracuda Backup Server can back up data directly from network file shares using industry standard protocols. It can also connect directly to Microsoft Exchange and Novell GroupWise to provide message-level backups for more granular restoration of user email messages.
The Barracuda Backup Service Web user interface makes it easy to manage backups and conduct data restores across multiple Barracuda Backup Servers at one or more locations. The Web user interface provides access and control of settings, reports, restores, statistics, and account information in order to manage diverse Barracuda Backup Servers and subscription plans. In addition, customers receive automated alert notifications upon detection of conditions affecting backups.
