Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, today announced the release of Barracuda Backup 290, and a capacity upgrade to its current Barracuda Backup 390. These lineup additions provide further purchasing flexibility by better aligning Barracuda Backup with the data protection and recovery demands of small and medium-sized organizations.
“Giving customers choice and flexibility has always been a top priority for Barracuda,” said Rod Mathews, GM Storage at Barracuda. “Barracuda Backup 290 provides an option for branch offices looking to back up their local data at an affordable cost. Combine that with the buying flexibility of our integrated appliances and backup-as-a-service plans, and Barracuda Backup is one of the most flexible, cost effective backup solutions on the market.”
Barracuda Backup 290 comes equipped with 1TB of usable storage, fitting nicely between the 500GB Barracuda Backup 190 and the newly-adjusted 2TB Barracuda Backup 390. All three models can be purchased as an appliance with subscriptions separately, or under Barracuda’s Backup-as-a-Service plan, which includes an appliance, Energize Updates, Instant Replacement and Unlimited Cloud Storage with one, three or five year payment options.
These new additions to Barracuda Backup arrive on the heels of industry recognition for Barracuda’s storage business, including:
