“Being a market leader means providing customers with solutions that address their concerns. One way we’ve done that is by making virtualization a priority by designing features like Cloud LiveBoot for customers who need to protect and recover virtual machines,” said Rod Mathews, GM storage, Barracuda. “By taking the steps to become a VMware TAP Elite partner and achieving VMware Ready status, we’ve expanded our compatibility and support for customers looking for a backup solution for virtual environments.”

By using Barracuda Backup with VMware vSphere 5.0.x, enterprises can reduce downtime by quickly booting critical VMs in the Barracuda Cloud should their primary servers or storage fail. This combination delivers low-cost, rapid recovery directly from deduplicated backups without any special configuration.

“We are pleased that Barracuda Backup qualifies for the VMware Ready™ logo, signifying to customers that it works effectively with VMware vSphere®, and can be deployed in production with confidence,” said Sanjay Katyal, vice president, Global Alliances & OEMs, VMware.

The VMware Ready program is a co-branding benefit of the Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program that makes it easy for customers to identify partner products certified to work with VMware cloud infrastructure. Customers can use these products and solutions to lower project risks and realize cost savings over custom built solutions.  With thousands of members worldwide, the VMware TAP program includes best-of-breed technology partners with the shared commitment to bring the best expertise and business solution for each unique customer need.
