The Barracuda Backup Service is an affordable, integrated local and offsite data
backup and disaster recovery solution. The Barracuda Backup Service combines an
onsite appliance with a monthly subscription that replicates data to two offsite
locations. Combining local and offsite storage provides the best of both worlds
- onsite backups for the fastest restore times and secure offsite storage for
disaster recovery. Barracuda Backup Subscription plans provide diverse offsite
storage at affordable monthly fees and scale to meet increasing data
requirements. The Barracuda Backup Server is a powerful appliance installed
onsite to provide full local backup of current and historical data, high backup
performance and fast network-based local restores. The Barracuda Backup Server
also de-duplicates data at the origin to minimize the unnecessary storage of the
same file, while providing efficient and secure offsite transfer using
compression and encryption. 

The Barracuda Backup Service with Yosemite Backup is now available to customers
in North America at no additional charge. 

Barracuda Networks to Launch BarracudaWare

In addition to the immediate availability of Barracuda Backup Service with
Yosemite Backup, Barracuda Networks has also acquired the full Yosemite
Technologies product portfolio, including Yosemite Backup and Yosemite
FileKeeper. Barracuda Networks will continue to sell and support the Yosemite
products as part of its new BarracudaWare software group. 

"While the Barracuda Networks brand has come to represent a hybrid appliance and
services form-factor, BarracudaWare focuses on delivering software solutions
with the simplicity of Barracuda Networks' widely known combined hardware and
software products," said Drako.
