    What is Barracuda Backup?

    Barracuda Backup is an integrated (local and offsite) disaster recovery solution that's very affordable. It combines your onsite appliance and offsite data replication in a very flexible yearly, monthly or quarterly subscription. By combining offsite as well as local storage, it gives your organization the best of both worlds. You get onsite backups for the fast restore times as well as offsite secure storage for use in the event of a disaster.

    Why do I need a backup solution?

    We all know that any equipment that is storing data can fail. Whether it's offsite or local, backup is vital as it maintains a copy of your organization's data. In the event of a disaster or failure of equipment, you can restore your information. Proper backup of your organization’s data is a basic requirement for a disaster recovery plan.

    What's wrong with tape or an external hard drive for backups? What are the benefits of a combined local and offsite backup solution?

    Tape storage requires you to manually manage the scheduling of backups. A hard drive only makes one copy of your data. Regardless of which you use, the data that's stored has no ability to minimize duplication of files, and doesn't have a history of revisions - which is important, as you need to know which historical revision to restore. Another issue is the need to physically take data offsite on a regular basis.

    Instead, if you have an integrated offsite and local backup solution, it's easy to manage with regularly scheduled securely transmitted automatic backups.

    Why do I need a dedicated appliance for my backups?

    Using an appliance to conduct automated data backups and offsite replication has several advantages. An appliance like the Barracuda Backup Server (created for backup) is a purpose-built appliance which makes centralized management of backup connections to multiple devices possible. It also provides local storage to keep your main backup copy onsite for fast recovery in the case of a data loss incident.

    Software-based solutions need to be installed and also managed on every server they're protecting. In addition, it requires support and admin of additional hardware to provide the local backup and storage of data that's recommended. Barracuda Backup Server (unlike many of the software solutions) uses standard network protocols from computers that are running a wide range of OS to protect data. Additional benefits of using an appliance like Barracuda Backup Server for include the dedicated processing power for compression and deduplication, which increases the efficiency of storage and transmission as well as reducing the load on production servers.

    How is the Barracuda Backup different than other product offerings?

    Barracuda Backup is an efficient, comprehensive and flexible solution for your disaster recovery plans. It makes a local copy of data it's protecting and transfers it efficiently to an offsite location with no extra burden on your production servers. Barracuda Central monitors the offsite storage as a part of your monthly subscription. As a result, your organization has three copies of your data as well as several methods for restoring it.

    What ways can you restore data from Barracuda Backup?

    It's easy to restore data with any of these methods, including:

    1. 24/7 Barracuda Technical Support restore assistance
    2. Barracuda Backup local Restore Browser
    3. Barracuda Backup Restore Browser
    4. Physical shipment of restored data from Barracuda Networks

    Can Barracuda Backup help us achieve compliance with common regulations?

    Yes. It addresses the security requirements necessary to support compliance with a wide range of industry-specific regulations, like Gramm-Leach-Bliley for financial organizations and HIPAA for the healthcare industry.

    How does Barracuda Backup help with litigation requests?

    By simplifying the reproduction and retention of data, Barracuda Backup helps organizations get ready for discovery requests. You're able to enforce policies for your varied types of data as a result of the flexible data retention options with the Barracuda Backup.
