Barracuda fights data disasters with expanded data protection portfolio for AWS migration

Users are now able to replicate their data into their own AWS Simple Storage Service (S3) bucket.

Cloud-enabled security and data protection company Barracuda has declared war on data loss by introducing new features to its backup portfolio that allow users to replicate data from an on-premises physical or virtual backup appliance to AWS.

The upgraded backup solution, named Barracuda Backup, has been designed to protect customers, resellers, and MSPs data from data loss and “potential disasters”, including security threats such as ransomware.

Barracuda Backup’s capabilities to replicate to customers’ own AWS Simple Storage Service (S3) bucket are available in addition to the ability to replicate to the Barracuda Cloud.

Rod Mathews, senior vice president and general manager, data protection solutions at Barracuda, said: “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 unauthorised access.

“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.”
