Virtual Machine Integration
Organizations running Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware vSphere have flexible backup options that include guest and image-level backups. In both platforms, only new, changed, deduplicated data chunks are transferred across the virtual/physical infrastructure. Barracuda leverages VMware’s Changed Block Tracking (CBT) for faster backups and restores. Barracuda provides fast, easy recovery of individual files or complete VM images to the original VMware, an existing VMware or a new VMware.
Barracuda replication technology allows organizations to securely send data to the Barracuda Cloud or another backup appliance. With Barracuda’s replication technologies, organizations can be assured their data is stored with 256-bit AES encryption. Barracuda offers various data centers worldwide to replicate data.
Barracuda’s robust central management allows organizations to manage multiple sites from a clean and simple-to-use interface. Administrators can define roles in their organization for access to each location.
Near Continuous Data Protection
The Barracuda Backup Agent can backup mission critical servers every 15 minutes. These agents only look for new or changed files, minimizing the backup window required.
Barracuda offers a wide range of restore options. Organizations with physical servers are able to perform bare metal restores in case of catastrophic failure. Virtual environments benefit from fast image-based restores. In case of disaster, customers with Instant Replacement can have Barracuda ship an appliance prepopulated with the data in the cloud fast local restores.
In the event of a disaster, Barracuda Networks will preload the most recent data and configuration stored in the Barracuda Cloud to a replacement unit. Organizations also benefit by exchanging their appliance for a new appliance with the latest specs every four years, with a maintained Instant Replacement subscription.
Barracuda LiveBoot offers organizations protecting their VMware environment with Barracuda an option to leverage Barracuda infrastructure if their own virtual environment goes down. Customers are able to have the local Barracuda appliance act as storage, booting the protected VM from a deduplicated state in minutes. Customers replicating to the Barracuda Cloud can use Cloud LiveBoot to boot multiple VMs there directly from deduplicated storage and assign private or public addresses to the devices.
