New Barracuda Storage Offerings Provide Data Protection Plus for Customers

Barracuda Boosts Storage Portfolio with Acquisition of C2C Systems and Added Support for Application Availability, Workforce Productivity and Mobility

CAMPBELL, Calif., Sept. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Barracuda Networks, Inc. (NYSE: CUDA), a leading provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, today announced its new Data Protection Plus strategic initiative, aimed at helping customers access, retain and share critical data from anywhere and any device. As part of this initiative, Barracuda is announcing several major enhancements and new releases across its portfolio of cloud-connected backup, archiving and productivity solutions, as well as the acquisition of C2C Systems, a leading provider of information management, email archiving and PST management solutions.

"Today's modern workplace is more virtualized, cloud enabled and mobile. One of IT's biggest challenges is to ensure business applications are up and running – promoting application availability, productivity and collaboration – often with limited time and resources," said Rod Mathews, GM Storage at Barracuda. "Protecting the modern workplace demands a new way of thinking. Data Protection Plus enables and accelerates the use of virtualization, cloud and mobile technologies, and represents the latest innovation across our storage product line. Barracuda continues to make it easy for our customers to access, retain and share their critical information."

"With the growth in cloud and virtualization, data is more accessible than ever before," said Dave Simpson, senior storage analyst, 451 Research. "IT organizations require solution flexibility to not only protect that data, but also provide fast recovery and availability options to workers everywhere. Barracuda's approach to delivering multiple options across the storage portfolio gives customers that flexibility."

Leveraging their investment in Barracuda, customers can simplify their IT infrastructure and centrally manage solutions across the Barracuda portfolio – regardless of the size or type of deployment – through integrated, easy-to-use web interfaces that support configuration, monitoring and reporting. New functionality available as part of the Data Protection Plus initiative is included at no additional cost to customers with current Energize Updates subscriptions. Details on the individual product updates, general availability and pricing will be released in the coming weeks. Highlights include:

Protection Plus Availability – Barracuda Backup
Barracuda Backup version 6.0 extends the flexibility for organizations deploying in cloud-connected or private "dark" environments. The new version includes a number of updates such as local control to enable operation and management in private "dark" environments without sending data to the cloud, faster recovery times with granular recovery of Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines without the need to restore the VM, and support for Microsoft SQL Server 2014. 

Protection Plus Accessibility – Barracuda Message Archiver
Barracuda Message Archiver version 4.0 extends archiving capacity by allowing Barracuda Message Archiver to move or copy data to the Barracuda Cloud. The new cloud archiving gives users access to email from any device, regardless if email services are available, extending capacity and offsite disaster recovery. Barracuda Message Archiver version 4.0 also allows customers to connect appliances for capacity expansion and federated search to scale and grow with their businesses, without over-committing resources. Barracuda Message Archiver is available as a virtual appliance for customers looking to deploy archives without additional hardware.

Protection Plus Information Management – Acquisition of C2C Systems
Barracuda's acquisition of C2C Systems allows the company to offer customers a more complete information management and archiving product portfolio to simplify IT and control storage costs. The companies' shared philosophy around simplicity and customer experience provides customers with extended value across the expanded archiving portfolio, which now includes file and message archiving, eDiscovery, and PST management solutions. This addition enables Barracuda to help eliminate risks associated with distributed PST files, reduce eDiscovery overhead via information management and early investigation, and support information management and governance initiatives via extended retention management policies.

Protection Plus Mobility – Barracuda Copy
The new Barracuda Copy Site Server is an on-premises device that enables onsite and cloud-based file sync and share to optimize access, performance and security. The solution works with corporate authentication services, including LDAP, for centralized, seamless access control, and offers support for existing file shares with the ability to act as a local network drive.

Protection Plus Productivity – Barracuda SignNow
The new Barracuda SignNow Appliance is an on-premises device that allows organizations to share, sign and collaborate in a secure environment. Organizations now can deploy a robust eSignature solution on-premises – in hardware or virtual form factors – for greater control over critical business documents.

"Barracuda's approach to the cloud not only helps ensure our data is protected from a disaster, but also provides excellent accessibility to our workforce," said Shawn Evans, IT Manager at SaulsCare, a Barracuda Message Archiver customer and healthcare organization based in Southwest Florida.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings.

Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

"Now is the time for a truly global DX event, to bring together the leading minds from the technology world in a conversation about Digital Transformation," he said in making the announcement.
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
