Barracuda Networks announced that its local Australian cloud storage for Barracuda Backup customers is now live. Based in Sydney, the new datacenter will support Barracuda customers Australia-wide using Barracuda Backup's secure, scalable and redundant cloud-enabled solution.
Barracuda Backup is an end-to-end business backup solution for mixed physical and virtual server environments. Barracuda Backup is simple to deploy and manage, and brings powerful and affordable backup and recovery to organisations in Australia.
The Sydney datacenter will support Barracuda's Cloud LiveBoot for VMware which enables a VM to be booted directly in the Barracuda cloud from de-duplicated backup storage. Cloud LiveBoot helps reduce overall downtime and latency, as well as provides customers with a platform for testing and sandboxing their servers to validate software upgrades or changes.
Barracuda also plans to expand its sales and marketing opportunities to public and private sector organisations that prefer in-region facilities for primary cloud storage.
