Barracuda Networks Launches Barracuda Backup Server 990 Featuring Increased Storage Capacity for Local Data Backup -- Additional Barracuda Backup Service Enhancements to Include Faster Data Transfer to the Cloud for Offsite Storage

Campbell, Calif., April 8, 2010 -- Barracuda Networks Inc., a leading provider of security, storage and networking solutions, today launched the Barracuda Backup Server 990 with 24 terabytes of internal storage, making it the ideal on-premises solution for organizations requiring local backup for large volumes of data. Now available in six models and combined with the Barracuda Backup Subscription to provide offsite backup storage in the cloud, the Barracuda Backup Service is the most complete backup and disaster recovery solution available for organizations today.

"As organizations continue to migrate their data protection strategies from legacy tape backups, Barracuda Networks has seen greater demand for high density disk-based data protection," said Stephen Pao, vice president of product management for Barracuda Networks. "With the Barracuda Backup Server 990, we continue to take advantage of both the advantages and economics of modern disk storage technologies."

The increased onsite storage capacity offered with the Barracuda Backup Server 990 is crucial for organizations like Ohio-based American Motorcyclist Association that require a reliable solution for storing financial and racing data, as well as membership data for its 235,000 members.

"Protecting over 85 years of member data is critical to the American Motorcyclist Associations' business," said Robert Kluczynski, director of IT and project management for the American Motorcyclist Association. "The Barracuda Backup Server 990 product has reduced our data management costs by 25 percent and allowed us to focus more time on member-centric activities. Barracuda Networks proved to be our number one choice for data backup and has exceeded our expectations in customer service and response time as well."

Refining offsite data transfer and deduplication capabilities

The Barracuda Backup Service now features more efficient backup transfer methods by better utilizing the available bandwidth between the backup server and the cloud. This makes it possible to transfer large amounts of changing data offsite in shorter times than traditional solutions. The Barracuda Backup Service now provides new data deduplication functionality for Windows server backups.

The Barracuda Backup Service now offers full open file backup support which allows administrators to back up files that have been locked by the operating system for improved data protection. The Barracuda Backup Service also increases the efficiency of the local network by starting the deduplication process at the agent, eliminating the need to send as much network traffic across the local network.

Formerly restricted to Windows system support for Windows Server 2003 and 2008, upgrades to the Barracuda Backup Agent software now support Windows 7 and provide full system backup and restore, making it easier for full system recovery in the event a server goes down. The Barracuda Backup Agent software is provided at no additional per server or per agent fees. (continued...)
