We used Barracuda Backup to backup data across our entire enterprise. We backed up all recent versions of Windows and Red Hat Linux servers both physical and virtualized with VMware ESXi as well as SQL Server Databases.

We use the on-site appliance to backup for our entire organization, our VMware environment, and a couple of physical machines. We also use the AWS replication service for off-site backups, utilizing the Barracuda Backup schedules and retention policies.

We currently use this product to backup all of our Microsoft Office 365 Emails, OneDrive and SharePoint files. We have been using this product for a few years and mostly happy with it as it securely, affordably and efficiently backs files up in a cloud to cloud format, which makes administration simple.

We use Barracuda Backup across our whole organization. It does a great job filtering spam and backing up email. It is extremely easy to look up backed up emails and restore them. We receive a lot of spam, to the point were Barracuda reports that it blocks 97% of the spam messages we would normally receive.

The solution was used across the entire organization. It provided onsite and off site backups of a business critical information. I’ve used the solution at two different organizations and in both instances it has exceeded expectations. Customer support is always on point when needed.

Barracuda Backup was personally the best backup product I've worked with in my 25 years of IT. The interface is friendly, the search is easy, restore is a no-brainer, and replication to another device or cloud was also very easy. The on-premise appliance was being used to backup 2 sites and replicate them to the Barracuda Cloud.

We use 2 Barracuda devices for backups of our Primary VMware server and remote servers. It runs daily incremental backups on the company's shared files and weekly backups of the entire server environment. We use it along with weekly VMware backups for baremetal recovery.

Barracuda Backup is a perfect unlimited cloud backup solution that we use. This tool is used across the organization. I had no problem implementing it because its interface is excellent and easy to manage. After I finished the implementation and configuration of the schedules, you wait for error and failure notifications. Not even with the updates I had to bother, these are optimized and performed automatically at the given time. Restorations are simple as well and save lives.

Our organization uses barracuda Backup as the primary backup and recovery solution for our VMware environment. We wanted a simple appliance that had cloud replication capabilities to automate and streamline our backups across multiple platforms. Barracuda Backup hit the sweet spot for all of our needs, including cost, features, and ease of administration.

We use Barracuda Backup to back up our entire server infrastructure bot physical (where remaining) and also our whole virtual environment. This backup is pushed to the cloud after the backup window and after being deduplicated and compressed then deduplicated against the cloud and then compressed and encrypted and securely transmitted via VPN to Barracuda Backup controlled and owned data centers where it is encrypted at rest. It fulfills all my needs, where I wanted one vendor to call through the whole backup infrastructure.

We have two Barracuda Backup Appliances. One backs up our critical ESXi Virtual Servers. We use this for emergency recovery. The other backs up all our user data, department data, exchange servers and databases. This one also backs up to their cloud services. This addresses standard backup and restore of user and server data. It also protects us from potential ransomware by giving the ability to delete infected data and restore the good data.

I'm the project manager for a MSP. Not only do we utilize a Barracuda Backup Appliance in house, we utilize them for a number of our managed customers. The ability to monitor and control the devices through Barracuda's cloud has increased our efficiency dramatically. With all the options Barracuda provides, like replicating data to the cloud, or to another appliance at a remote site has been a huge selling point for our customers. As an example, one of the financial institutions we work with didn't want any of their data being replicated off network, we were able to deploy a second appliance at one of their other locations, having one replicate to the other keeping redundant backups in-house. Barracuda makes the setup process so easy, one of our level one techs can do the install, and at the same time provides our backup admins the ability to fine-tune a number of features. Restoring files is as simple, if not easier than some of the other backup solutions we utilized, and the ability to have the device restore an entire server to a virtualized cluster has been a life saver more times than I can count.

This product is used across the organization. Barracuda back and Barracuda cloud are an essential part of our disaster recovery plan. The integration with Office365, SQL, and VMware was essential to purchase Barracuda.

We use the Barracuda Backup appliance for all of our remote schools we support. It allowed us to implement an effective backup solution quickly without much of a learning curve. We backup VMWare and physical hosts over a leased and owned fiber WAN. We also own an enterprise Avamar solution and use that for our primary data center backups and Barracuda for our offsite data centers.

We use Barracuda backup to back up our workstations in our environment. The good thing about it is that it can backup Windows, Linux, and Mac machines. We also are able to target certain machines so that people that have data that doesn't need to be saved if the machine fails do not use unnecessary data. We also drill down into the user profile so that we are not backing up the OS either.

It is used internally as well as externally. It allowed us to backup servers and virtual machines through easy installation on the location being backed up and a cloud management console. It allows us to monitor the allocated size of the physical device as well pick and choose what we want to get backed up. We can then move any revisions onto the cloud. It is user friendly and helps us make sure our clients backups are taken care of.

Barracuda is used in our technology area, where all the institution's important information is stored. It is replicated in the cloud and in another external Barracuda devices, providing a better model of disaster recovery than what we were using.

My company has a Barracuda Backup appliance in place for our primary solution. The entire company's data is stored in the appliance as well as all server and database configurations. It automatically replicates all data to the Barracuda cloud servers for offsite backups.

We are a reseller of Barracuda Backups in addition to using it within our own environment. We have over 50 customers using them, which are centrally managed in the Barracuda Cloud console (saving our engineers a lot of time). This product is ideal for backups and disaster recovery. Backup and restorations are very straightforward and fast. Additionally, the appliances have helped our clients to meet all of their compliance and regulatory requirements.

Barracuda backup is being used to backup Windows files servers, a Microsoft Exchange server, a Mac file server, and an SQL server. It allowed us to replicate backups offsite without having servers offsite. Prior to Barracuda backup, it was required to carry tapes offsite.

We currently use two 490 units. We use them company wide to backup our most important data along with utilizing the cloud control functionality that Barracuda offers. We backup approximately 10-12 servers including multiple shares. We run the backups on a two hour schedule to ensure the best retention of data for our users in the case of an issue.
