Barracuda backup – now with recovery via LiveBoot™for VM Ware
Date: Apr 29, 2013
This year, Barracuda launched the Barracuda Backup release 5.0, which featured ground breaking functionality including instant recovery via Barracuda LiveBoot™ for VMware.
This new capability, (available at no additional charge to Barracuda Backup customers), allows administrators to boot a critical server if the primary storage for their VMware environment fails, which reduces overall downtime.
Barracuda Backup is a complete end-to-end business backup solution for mixed physical and virtual server environments. Barracuda LiveBoot for VMware enables a virtual machine to be live-booted directly off the Barracuda Backup Server’s deduplicated backup storage, getting businesses up and running again quickly. In addition to reducing overall downtime, Barracuda LiveBoot for VMware also provides customers with a platformfor testing and sandboxing servers to validate software or changes.
Virtualisation brought with it signiﬁcant management beneﬁts that were not previously possible in the physical server world. The new ability to instantly boot from deduplicated backups and test restores to ﬁle level, offers
unprecedented capabilities in datacentre continuity and DR, which was previously unrealised in the world of tape backup.
• Granular Data Restore
Barracuda Backup 5.0 features an intuitive restore browser where administrators can either recover a whole server or selectively restore folders and individual ﬁ les directly from a single pass, fully deduplicated backup
store. The use of one deduplicated image to do both types of restores eliminates the need to install additional software or run separate backups for granular restore options, and it provides ﬂexibility.
• Elastic Compute Resources
Barracuda Backup’s integration with server storage in the customer’s VMware environment provides more ﬂexibility on the compute resources they apply to recovered servers. The Barracuda Backup sets the industry
standard for assured data storage and retrieval while minimising data-storage costs and administration effort.
Barracuda Backup combines a plug-and-play appliance for onsite backups with cloud and private cloud disk-based replication to quickly and securely store data in multiple locations off-site.
