Wick Hill now shipping Barracuda Backup 5.2 with Cloud LiveBoot

Wick Hill announces the availability of Barracuda 5.2, with Cloud LiveBoot.

This new version extends Barracuda Backup LiveBoot recovery technology to the cloud, enabling customers to boot VMware images they have replicated to the cloud by pulling data directly from deduplicated storage, as it is needed. This new functionality is included at no additional charge to Barracuda Backup customers with Energize Updates and Instant Replacement subscriptions.

Barracuda Backup offers 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 booted directly off the Barracuda Backup Server's deduplicated backup storage live, getting businesses up and running again quickly.

With Barracuda Backup version 5.2, customers can extend Barracuda LiveBoot for VMware to the cloud using Barracuda's virtualisation infrastructure. In addition to recovery and reducing overall downtime, Barracuda Cloud LiveBoot for VMware provides customers a platform for testing the validity of their backups, granular restores, and testing applications outside of their production environments.

Ian Kilpatrick, chairman Wick Hill Group, commented: "This is a major feature for new and existing Barracuda backup customers, who are using VMware. It provides organisations with security, continuity and a testing environment."

Barracuda Backup version 5.2 customers will continue to benefit from the same capabilities they have come to depend on with Barracuda Backup:

  • Diverse Restore and Availability Options - Barracuda Backup features an intuitive restore browser where administrators can recover a whole server (physical or virtual), can selectively restore folders and individual files from a single pass backup, or can restore to the Copy cloud and share data with other Copy users.
  • Elastic Recovery Resources - Barracuda Backup's integration with the customer's VMware environment provides flexibility on the compute resources applied to recovered servers. Barracuda Backup sets the industry standard for assured data storage and retrieval while minimising data-storage costs and administration effort.
