Barracuda Extends product line, expands cloud pricing options

Barracuda Networks, Inc. (NYSE: CUDA) has updated its Barracuda Backup product line, including new subscription and cloud storage pricing and two new large-scale models, increasing deployment flexibility for customers operating in physical, virtual, cloud, and hybrid environments, the company said.

Barracuda Backup Vx is a software offering that is deployed as a virtual machine in VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V, and includes the same integrated backup functionality as the physical Barracuda Backup appliance. It can now be purchased as a per-socket subscription for virtual hosts, which includes software replication. Physical server backup with Barracuda Backup Vx can be licensed on a per-server basis.

Barracuda Backup Vx includes a new metered Barracuda Cloud Storage plan that is priced competitively against major public cloud storage providers. With today´s announcement, it now includes built-in data redundancy and the ability to move data out of the cloud without additional bandwidth charges as with other cloud backup providers.

Barracuda also introduced a new standalone purchasing option for Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup. The new option offers one of the industry´s most cost-effective cloud backup services.
Barracuda Backup 790 offers 12 TB of usable capacity and Barracuda Backup 895 offers 24 TB of usable capacity, giving customers cost effective options as their backup requirements expand.

Barracuda simplifies IT with cloud-enabled solutions that empower customers to protect their networks, applications, and data, regardless of where they reside.
