Barracuda Backup

Barracuda Backup is a flexible, fully digital, highly automated backup solution with complete disaster recovery.

The Barracuda Backup Server provides a full local data backup and then replicates data offsite for disaster protection. This hybrid approach provides the best of both worlds – local backups via a dedicated appliance for great performance and restore times, and disaster recovery data protection through offsite replication using either the Barracuda Cloud Storage Service or site-to-site “private cloud” replication. In both cases, data deduplication is applied inline at the block level to reduce traditional backup storage requirements 20 to 50 times while also reducing backup windows and bandwidth requirements.

Barracuda Backup protects data with AES 256-bit encryption at all times from transfer to storage. The system uses no removable media that can be lost, stolen or accidentally damaged.


Eliminates separate vendor costs for software, tapes, media storage, transportation and countless staff hours. Also, there are no per-server or per-application backup software license fees.


Barracuda Backup backs up and restores at LAN speed. By deduplicating and compressing data, the total backup storage footprint is reduced 20 to 50 times verses traditional backup methods.

Offsite Replication

For disaster recovery, Barracuda Backup maintains multiple copies of backed up data in offsite locations at secure Barracuda cloud storage centres or by using multiple Barracuda Backup Servers to setup private clouds via site-to-site replication across a corporate network.

Diverse Restore Methods

Barracuda Backup lets you get everything back up and running in no time with 6 options for super-fast data retrieval, including through your browser. You can restore from your replicated offsite storage or directly from the Backup Server itself at LAN speeds.

Revision History

It’s easy to go back. Barracuda Backup tracks revision histories that let administrators accurately roll files or even entire servers back to previous backed up versions.

Click on a question below to reveal the answer…

Q. What is the Barracuda Backup?

A. The Barracuda Backup is an affordable, integrated local and offsite data backup and disaster recovery solution. The Barracuda Backup combines an onsite appliance with a monthly subscription that replicates data offsite. Combining local and offsite storage provides the best of both worlds – onsite backups for the fastest restore times and secure, offsite storage for disaster recovery.

Q. Why do I need a backup solution?

A. Equipment storing information can fail. Backup, whether it is local or offsite, maintains a redundant copy of an organization’s valuable data in the event of a system failure or natural disaster as well as retains data to fulfil compliance requirements and litigation requests. With the additional copy of data, IT administrators gain the ability to easily search or restore important files. A backup solution for data restores is an integral part of an organization’s disaster recovery plan.

Q. Why can’t I use tape or an external hard drive for backups? What are the benefits of a combined local and offsite backup solution?

A. Tapes require the manual management of scheduling backups. Hard drives only create one instance of your data. Whether using tapes or hard drives, the stored data has no means to minimize file duplications and does not possess revision history to select the correct historical version to revert back to. Another burden is the need to regularly transport data offsite for a secondary copy in the event of a system failure or disaster.

In comparison, an integrated local and offsite backup solution is easy to manage with automatic backups based on a set time or changes made to files, as well as the secure transfer of data offsite for disaster recovery.

Q. Why should I use a dedicated hardware appliance for my backups?

There are several advantages to using a hardware appliance to conduct automated data backups and offsite replication. A hardware appliance created for backup, like the Barracuda Backup Server, is a purpose-built appliance that enables centralized management of backup connections to multiple devices and provides the local storage necessary to keep a primary backup copy onsite for fast recovery in the majority of data loss scenarios.

Software backup solutions need installation and management on every server they protect, plus requires the administration and support of additional hardware to provide recommended local storage of the backup data. Unlike many software solutions, the Barracuda Backup Server protects data using standard networking protocols from computers running a wide range of operating systems. Other benefits of using a hardware appliance for backups include the dedicated processing power to increase efficiency through deduplication and compression, reduction of load on production servers by not having to run backup software and the creation of a dedicated restore device on your local network.

Q. How is the Barracuda Backup different than other product offerings?

A. The Barracuda Backup creates a local copy of protected data and efficiently transfers the data offsite without additional burden to production servers. The offsite storage is monitored and managed by Barracuda Central as part of the monthly Barracuda Backup Subscription. With three secure copies of data and six methods to restore an organization’s assets, the Barracuda Backup is a comprehensive, flexible and efficient solution to achieve your disaster recovery needs.

Q. Is the Barracuda Backup safe?

A. Yes. The Barracuda Backup utilizes an aggressive security combination of symmetrical and asymmetrical encryption to keep your data stored in a format that nobody but you can access. The United States government recently approved 192-bit AES encryption as the preferred method for protecting top secret information. The Barracuda Backup starts with the even more secure 256-bit AES encryption level. Your data is secured by this aggressive encryption methodology both while being transferred offsite and during its storage at Barracuda Central.

Q. Where is my data stored with the Barracuda Backup?

A. The Barracuda Backup is an affordable, integrated local and offsite data backup and disaster recovery solution. The Barracuda Backup combines an onsite appliance with a monthly subscription that replicates data offsite. Combining local and offsite storage provides the best of both worlds – onsite backups for the fastest restore times and secure, offsite storage for disaster recovery.

Q. What are the six ways to restore data from the Barracuda Backup?

A. Data is easy to restore using any of the following methods, including:
1. Barracuda Restore Client for Windows
2. FTP from Barracuda Backup Server
3. FTPS from Barracuda Central
4. Barracuda Backup Web interface
5. 24/7 Barracuda Technical Support restore assistance
6. Shipment of restored data from Barracuda Networks

Q. Can the Barracuda Backup help achieve compliance with common regulations?

A. Yes. The Barracuda Backup addresses the security requirements necessary to support compliance with a wide range of industry-specific regulations such as HIPAA for the healthcare industry, and Gramm-Leach-Bliley for financial organizations.

Q. Does the Barracuda Backup help in retaining and reproducing data for litigation requests?

A. Yes. Retention policies using Barracuda Backup assists organizations in preparing for discovery requests by simplifying the retention and reproduction of electronic data. The flexible data retention options with the Barracuda Backup allow you to enforce specific specific policies for your various types of data.
