Reliability and Predictability

Instant Replacement provides next business day hardware replacement. In the event of disaster, Barracuda will even pre-load the most recent data and configuration settings stored in Barracuda Cloud Storage onto the replacement unit and an included complimentary hardware refresh every four years will keep you on the latest platform at no additional cost.

Inline Deduplication

Barracuda inline deduplication, an inherent capability of all Barracuda Backup products, lets organizations significantly reduce storage needs, bandwidth requirements, and backup costs. By deduplicating data as it is received, Barracuda Backup minimizes the time for completion of the full backup and replication process. Barracuda’s advanced variable block deduplication analyzes the data type and chunk size, setting a block size to obtain the greatest level of deduplication. For organizations protecting multiple sites, Barracuda’s global deduplication and cloud storage technology help distributed networks stay protected while reducing the backup storage footprint.

Virtual Machine Integration

Organizations running Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware vSphere have flexible backup options that include guest and image-level backups. In both platforms, only new, changed, deduplicated data chunks are transferred across the virtual/physical infrastructure. Barracuda leverages VMware’s Changed Block Tracking (CBT) for faster backups and restores. Barracuda provides fast, easy recovery of individual files or complete VM images to the original VMware, an existing VMware or a new VMware.


Barracuda replication technology allows organizations to securely send data to the Barracuda Cloud or another backup appliance. With Barracuda’s replication technologies, organizations can be assured their data is stored with 256-bit AES encryption. Barracuda offers various data centers worldwide to replicate data.

Offsite Vaulting

Organizations with conservative retention policies can use Offsite Vaulting to minimize the cost of backup storage. With Offsite Vaulting, organizations can move local copies of their monthly and yearly backups off their local appliance to the Barracuda Cloud or another Barracuda appliance.

Unlimited Barracuda Cloud Storage

Unlimited Barracuda Cloud Storage provides storage to replicate Barracuda Backup to the cloud. Unlimited Barracuda Cloud Storage subscriptions allow replication of data on Barracuda Backup, up to the capacity of your Backup product, to our geographically distributed enterprise-grade datacenters to store your data safely. The included offsite vaulting allows extended retention by moving multiple revisions off Barracuda Backup and into Barracuda Cloud.

Centralised Management

Barracuda’s robust central management allows organizations to manage multiple sites from a clean and simple-to-use interface. Administrators can define roles in their organization for access to each location.

Local Management

Local Control allows complete protection for those operating in private environments or deploying private cloud technologies.

Near Continuous Data Protection

The Barracuda Backup Agent can back up mission-critical servers every 15 minutes. These agents only look for new or changed files, minimising the backup window required.

Data Recovery

Barracuda offers a wide range of restore options. Organizations with physical servers are able to perform bare metal restores in case of catastrophic failure. Virtual environments benefit from fast image-based restores. In case of disaster, customers with Instant Replacement can have Barracuda ship an appliance prepopulated with the data in the cloud for fast local restores.


Barracuda LiveBoot offers organizations protecting their VMware environment with Barracuda Backup the option to leverage Barracuda Cloud Storage if their own virtual environment goes down. Customers can have their local Barracuda Backup act as storage, booting the protected virtual machine from a deduplicated state within minutes. Customers that subscribe to Instant Replacement who replicate to Barracuda Cloud Storage can use Cloud LiveBoot to boot multiple VMs directly from deduplicated storage and assign private or public addresses to the devices.

Cloud-to-Cloud Backup

Organizations are migrating to SaaS and Cloud-hosted environments like Office 365. While SaaS and Cloud-hosted environments are fantastic ways to mitigate against natural and mechanical failures, human-caused data loss is always present. Cloud-to-Cloud Backup for Microsoft Office 365 protects Exchange Online mailboxes and OneDrive for Business files and folders from data loss.

Flexible Deployments

Barracuda Backup is available as both an all-in-one physical appliance or as software that can be deployed in virtual environments to leverage existing compute and storage infrastructures.

Online Backup

Online backup, remote backup or cloud backup are all names for essentially the same solution, regardless of what you call it, it protects data against disasters such as theft, fire, water damage, virus, power failure and technical faults all of which can lead to important data loss.  Companies who fail to backup their data can suffer far reaching consequences which are often colossal.  This is why a good backup solution is essential!  If you have a complex infrastructure with multiple servers or your business consists of one PC, an online backup solution is always the best solution.

The Importance of backing up online!

To protect your business a backup of your crucial data should be made at least daily.  It is important that both the backup and the original are available.  Making a backup on an external hard drive results in the old backups always being overwritten, later version then runs the risk of corruption.  The Mitol PerfectBackup solution provides sufficient protection against such data loss. For example, if a crash occurs during the making of a backup on an external hard drive, you run the risk that both the original and the backup are unusable.  Mitol PerfectBackup eliminates this problem as you can restore the previous day’s backup which will not have been overwritten and will be stored separately.

"Reduce Unwanted risk, maximise Data security"

Companies often only realise the importance of backup once data has been lost; it is then too late.  Full backup images which overwrite each other are often a cause of data loss.  Mitol PerfectBackup keeps multiple versions so data can be restored at any time.

Mitol PerfectBackup offers the convenience and security of online backup; hardware and software investments are no longer necessary.  With Mitol PerfectBackup, data can be backed up online automatically.  Files are sent daily with 256-bit encryption via SSL to our data centre and stored. Important business data is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  In case of emergencies, data can be quickly restored.

The Mitol PerfectBackup software is platform independent, ie both Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, Sun Solaris, Novell and all platforms with Java 2 JRE Standard Edition, from v1.3.1 are supported. Our backup software also supports all major database applications.

Just need to backup a PC or laptop?  Online backup software for “loose” files and Outlook data residing on your workstation, notebook or server.  Via the software a single computer can be automatically backed up offsite. You set the software once only and have no further concerns.  Even though only one device is still being backed up we still replicate your data to 3 x separate tier 1 datacenters.


Restoring data is easy. Through the software or the Web interface, select the desired documents and put them back to the original or alternate location.


By using 256 bit encryption and SSL between the server and client, you are assured of the highest possible security.


The PC-Mac Backup software is suitable for Windows or Mac laptop, workstation or server.  Backup of Microsoft Outlook is also supported.

Backup your servers, websites and databases easily and automatically.  Online backup for server edition allows you to back up multiple servers and workstations (any device with data) to a single centralize account.  For piece of mind you will receive an daily e-mail confirming the status of all your backups.  With latest in-file delta technology, your backup is extremely efficient and you will not have to upload files every day, the only upload needed is the differences from the previous day.

Relax in the knowledge that your data is backed up automatically every night and replicated to an industry leading 3 x tier 1 datacenters.  Because your data is stored within the secure confines of 3 datacenters you are covered by our unique £1,000,000 data recovery guarantee.


Server backup can backup all known databases. The backup can be made while keeping your online services running. Backup MySQL, Microsoft SQL, Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, Oracle and more.


As with PC/Mac backup, the backup is using 256 bit encryption and SSL between the server and client. This means you are assured of the highest security.


Server backup provides the following modules for making backups, namely Volume Shadow Copy (VSS), Continuous Data Protection (CDP), In File Delta technology and Brick Level Exchange.

Platform independent

The Mitol PerfectBackup software is platform independent, i.e. Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, Sun Solaris, Novell and all platforms that support Java2 JRE Standard Edition, v1.3.1 or later

Managed Online Backup?

If you do not have the knowledge or ability to install, manage or monitor your daily backup routine then Mitol PerfectBackup is the answer.

Using the free MySQL plugin, a MySQL database can be backed up without interrupting the service, basically a ”Hot Backup”. The database can be used and is accessible when the backup process is running.

A backup of Microsoft SQL Server is easy to do with MS SQL plugin. The backup is performed while the databases are active. The backup software scans the SQL database and sends the changes to the data center. The software supports full and transaction log backups in the following versions: MsSQL 2000, 2005, 2008.

Microsoft Exchange can be easily backed up with the Microsoft Exchange module. By using a “Hot Backup” you can access the Exchange server (send and receive emails) during backup. After a full upload of the Exchange database is an incremental backup via In File Delta technology daily. The software supports MS Exchange 2000 (SP3), 2003, 2007 and 2010

Backing up individual Exchange mailboxes is no problem with the Exchange brick level module. This can easily backup and restore individual mailboxes or emails to a live Exchange database. The module supports MS Exchange 2000 (SP3), 2003, 2007 and 2010
