- SaaS Cloud-to-Cloud Backup launch is part of existing flexible options, it says
- Allows businesses to manage their data protection and disaster recovery needs
CLOUD security and storage solutions provider Barracuda Networks Inc has announced the launch of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Cloud-to-Cloud Backup, beginning with support for Microsoft Office 365.
The launch is part of Barracuda’s existing flexible options for businesses to manage their data protection and disaster recovery needs, the company said in a statement.
“Cloud-to-Cloud Backup, Barracuda’s new SaaS backup option, provides customers with the ability to replicate data from supported cloud environments into Barracuda’s Cloud Storage, giving customers additional options for long-term data retention and physical-to-virtual portability,” said Thiban Darmalingam (pic), regional manager for Barracuda.
“… extending the value we provide to our customers is always our top priority, which includes giving them flexible options for protecting their data and restoring services quickly in the event of a disaster.
“With the increased adoption of SaaS applications, it is crucial that the same level that is available for physical servers is available for virtual servers and cloud services,” he added.
Barracuda's new Cloud-to-Cloud Backup currently supports Microsoft Office 365 including Exchange Online and OneDrive for Business.
IT administrators concerned about protecting Microsoft Office 365 environments will be able to replicate data over a secure connection to be stored in Barracuda Cloud Storage.
In the event of loss, IT administrators can easily download or restore data directly back to Microsoft’s hosted applications from Barracuda Cloud Control – a centralised web-based administration console, accessible from anywhere.
For businesses looking to meet extended retention requirements, Barracuda Backup customers can leverage Offsite Vaulting to store historical revisions in Barracuda’s Cloud Storage or an offsite Barracuda Backup appliance.
Barracuda said its LiveBoot feature provides a rapid recovery option for virtual environments during disasters and will now add physical-to-virtual (P2V) portability.
For physical servers that are not yet at the end of their life, IT admins will be able to restore these systems into a virtual server hosted in VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V.
