New Certifications Provide Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Customers with a Single-Vendor Backup and Recovery Solution

CAMPBELL, CA – April 7, 2014 — / — Barracuda Networks, Inc. (NYSE: CUDA), a leading provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, today announced new certifications for Barracuda Backup that extend official support to Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server environments. Organizations running Red Hat Enterprise Linux or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server ecosystems now have an alternate solution that further facilitates backup and recovery of their business critical data.

Barracuda also offers guest machine protection for Red Hat Enterprise Linux guest instances running on RHEL KVM, RHEV, Hyper-V or Vmware-based hypervisors, and support for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server on Hyper-V and VMware at the host level.

“Barracuda Backup provides customers with a cost-effective solution to manage backup demands through a single-vendor offering,” said Rod Mathews, GM storage, Barracuda. “Administrators supporting Red Hat Enterprise Linux or SUSE Linux Enterprise Server environments will benefit from quick backups and disaster recovery options that allow them to restore individual files or perform bare metal restores.”

“Our strong partner ecosystem is a major differentiator for Red Hat and contributes to the success of our industry-leading enterprise Linux platform. We’re thrilled to now count Barracuda as part of that ecosystem,” said Mike Werner, senior director, global technology programs, Red Hat.

Barracuda Backup eliminates the cumbersome multi-vendor approach and includes an appliance, all the software, backup agents, and redundant offsite replication to simplify the backup process. Barracuda’s advanced source-based and global deduplication reduces the space needed for storage, along with backup and replication windows. Barracuda Backup protects environments ranging from 500 GB — 100 TB at a single location, while offering an interface that supports multi-site deployments.

“The certification of Barracuda Backup provides SUSE Linux Enterprise Server customers with a seamless data protection offering for their environments,” said Darren Davis, director of ISV relations for SUSE. “Barracuda’s technology and support infrastructure provides our customers with a valuable, tested backup offering to keep data safe and businesses running.”
