Barracuda Backup Service

Data Deduplication, Onsite and Offsite Backup

The Barracuda Backup Service is an affordable, integrated local and offsite data deduplication, 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 optimized local and offsite storage provides the best of both worlds - onsite backups for the fastest restore times and secure, offsite storage for disaster recovery.

Integrated deduplication technology further increases savings in Network-attached Storage (NAS) backups. Applying block-level deduplication inline, the Barracuda Backup Service can yield reductions in backup storage requirements between 20 and 50 times over what is required for traditional backup or snapshot technologies.

Typical Deployment

The Barracuda Backup Service is designed to easily fit into any existing data center environment with access to transfer encrypted backups to cloud-based storage. The Barracuda Backup Server is deployed between the firewall and servers, which includes a direct path to Barracuda Central’s geographically dispersed data centers.
