 Integrates Popular Yosemite Backup Software with Barracuda Backup Service

Campbell, Calif., Jan. 27, 2009 – Barracuda Networks Inc., the worldwide leader in email and Web security appliances, today announced it has acquired  Yosemite Technologies, a leading provider of data backup and disaster recovery solutions.  Barracuda Networks has incorporated the Yosemite Backup technology in its Barracuda Backup Service providing complete Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL, and Microsoft Windows state backup at no additional charge.

“More than a decade ago, Yosemite Technologies broke new ground in the data backup market launching the well known Tapeware product line,” said Dean Drako, president and CEO of Barracuda Networks.  “Yosemite’s rich history in delivering easy to use data backup and disaster recovery technology, combined with Barracuda Networks expansive channel reach will ensure that more companies worldwide benefit from comprehensive and affordable data protection solutions.”

Barracuda Backup Service with Yosemite Backup
The Barracuda Backup Service with Yosemite Backup ensures that customers have a complete and affordable backup and disaster recovery solution for all applications including Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SQL Server.  In addition the integration supports the backup and restore of Microsoft Windows system state including the Windows registry and “Bare Metal” restores when used with locally attached removable media storage.

“Historically, solutions that encompass backup of all data and applications on a network have required complex and expensive software license agreements,” said Stephen Pao, vice president of product management for Barracuda Networks.  “The Barracuda Backup Service with Yosemite Backup pricing is simple, helping customers to save thousands upfront and countless more in the event of a disaster.”

The Barracuda Backup Service is an affordable, integrated local and offsite data backup and disaster recovery solution. The Barracuda Backup Service combines an onsite appliance with a monthly subscription that replicates data to two offsite locations. Combining local and offsite storage provides the best of both worlds - onsite backups for the fastest restore times and secure offsite storage for disaster recovery.  Barracuda Backup Subscription plans provide diverse offsite storage at affordable monthly fees and scale to meet increasing data requirements.  The Barracuda Backup Server is a powerful appliance installed onsite to provide full local backup of current and historical data, high backup performance and fast network-based local restores.  The Barracuda Backup Server also de-duplicates data at the origin to minimize the unnecessary storage of the same file, while providing efficient and secure offsite transfer using compression and encryption.

The Barracuda Backup Service with Yosemite Backup is now available to customers in North America at no additional charge.

Barracuda Networks to Launch BarracudaWare
In addition to the immediate availability of Barracuda Backup Service with Yosemite Backup, Barracuda Networks has also acquired the full Yosemite Technologies product portfolio, including Yosemite Backup and Yosemite FileKeeper.  Barracuda Networks continue to sell and support the Yosemite products as part of its new BarracudaWare software group.

“While the Barracuda Networks brand has come to represent a hybrid appliance and services form-factor, BarracudaWare focuses on delivering software solutions with the simplicity of Barracuda Networks’ widely known combined hardware and software products,” said Drako.
