Administrators set the schedule for how often backups should run throughout the day. This eliminates the risks associated with manual backup.
Fast local restore
Administrators can restore data directly from the Barracuda Backup Server at local network speeds. This is the quickest way to recover lost data or recreate historical data.
The Barracuda Backup Service automatically provides email alerts to administrators when service issues are detected. Notifications are sent when errors or file warnings are detected in backups or, when files are missing.
The Barracuda Backup Service encompasses the security requirements to cover a wide range of industry-specific regulations, such as HIPAA for the healthcare industry, and Gramm-Leach-Bliley for financial organizations.
Using advanced technology, the Barracuda Backup Service reduces the storage and transfer requirements for backups by analyzing each file and only transferring and archiving new bit sequences. This advanced de-duplication technology is applied within a single file's revision history as well as across the entire backup volume. De-duplication is also applied between data sets from multiple locations.
Backup selection and connections
The Barracuda Backup Service offers granular control to identify network volumes or limited areas within a network volume for backup. The Barracuda Backup Service uses standard network protocol connections, such as CIFs and NFS to access data.
The Barracuda Backup Service can be configured to backup as much or as little data as needed. A single Barracuda Backup Server is capable of managing regular backups for several terabytes of changing information. To store an even greater amount of data, administrators can deploy multiple Barracuda Backup Servers. The amount of data that the Barracuda Backup Service can store, both locally and offsite, is limitless.
Change detection backup and rate control
Utilizing efficient technology to detect file changes, the Barracuda Backup Service supports scheduled backups as often as every few minute for constant data protection. Separately, the Barracuda Backup Service enables control over the rate at which data is replicated to the offsite locations throughout the day. The rate control feature provides for the preservation of Internet bandwidth during peak usage and optimizes offsite backup transfers during daily non-peak hours.
Flexible data retention
The Barracuda Backup Service provides policy management to streamline complex data retention requirements. Administrators can set in-depth policies, specifying the retention of selected files or broader data based on daily, weekly, monthly or annual time intervals.
Retention policies using the Barracuda Backup Service assists organizations in discovery requests by simplifying the retention and reproduction of electronic data.
File watch rules
File watch rules send warning notifications when specified files have not been modified often enough or appear smaller than expected. Administrators are alerted if third-party backup software used to schedule backup files either fails or if the file appears to be of insufficient size.
To control critical data storage, administrators have the option of creating directory-based or file extension exclusions. Common exclusions include music, movies or other files deemed non-essential to the organization.
The integrated Web interface makes it easy to manage and back up data on the Barracuda Backup Server. The web interface provides access and control of settings, reports, restores, statistics and account information in order to manage multiple deployed Barracuda Backup Servers and Barracuda Backup Subscriptions across multiple locations.
Reports and statistical graphs
The Barracuda Backup Service offers reports for managing backups and understanding the information stored on the local or offsite backups. Using the web interface, a health monitor displays graphs of the Barracuda Backup Server and offsite storage conditions.
Complete data backup solution
Secure offsite backup
Advanced and efficient technology
Robust policy management
The Barracuda Backup Server is a powerful appliance installed onsite to provide full local backup of current and historical data, high backup performance and fast network-based local restores. The Barracuda Backup Server also de-duplicates data at the origin to minimize the unnecessary storage of the same file, while providing efficient and secure offsite transfer using compression and encryption.
A solid data backup and recovery plan is crucial for any organization, regardless of the industry or business size. As part of that plan, organizations need to have a solution in place to ensure that data is protected and easily accessible when it is needed.
