According to a new press release, “Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-enabled security and data protection solutions, today announced that organizations using Barracuda Backup now have the ability to replicate data securely and efficiently from either an on-premises physical or virtual backup appliance to AWS. This feature provides customers, resellers, and MSPs with improved flexibility and choice to protect their data from data loss and potential disasters, including security threats like ransomware, and is available in addition to the ability to replicate to the Barracuda Cloud.”
The release continues, “An effective data protection strategy involves replicating data offsite to protect against local disasters and data loss, yet many organizations do not have the resources for a second data center at a remote site, and need a simple, cost-effective solution to replicate backups. Customers, and the resellers and service providers they are working with, are increasingly turning to the cloud as a solution. According to a new Barracuda global research report, Unlocking the Benefits of Public Cloud, the majority of organizations surveyed said they use public cloud for storage (83%), followed by data recovery (62%).”
Rod Mathews, senior vice president and general manager of data protection solutions at Barracuda, commented, “Efficient data protection, in the cloud or on-premises, includes a strategy to rapidly recover data in the event of data loss or disaster, as well as the many security practices involved in preventing unauthorized access. As a security and data protection company committed to the cloud, Barracuda is uniquely positioned to help organizations with these challenges… Barracuda’s current replication technology allows organizations to securely and efficiently send data to the Barracuda Cloud or another backup appliance with minimal configuration. The new release gives customers and resellers adopting public cloud the flexibility to replicate data to AWS with the same simplicity – providing a choice of deployment options with the ability to maintain ownership and control of cloud data.”
