Barracuda adds three new regional data centers in France, United Arab Emirates (UAE), and India to help with the growing demand from customers to protect their data locally.
Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup sales grew by 55% in the past 12 months, and the new regions will support this growth further.
New Delhi, NFAPost: Barracuda Networks has announced its new regional Cloud-to-Cloud Backup data centre in India, France and UAE. The new data centre will help in meeting the growing demand for data protection services in the country and better serve local customers.
The additional data centers make a total of 10 regions for the solution, and customers’ Office 365 backup data will be stored locally within each region, a key requirement for customers operating in regulated industries or in countries with data protection laws.
Barracuda Networks APAC Vice President James Forbes-May said Barracuda continues to invest in its global infrastructure in order to help local organisations to get access to protection against emerging threats.
“As more organisations move to the cloud, they are looking to protect their data, while being able to handle and store data locally. Microsoft even advises customers to use a third-party backup and recovery provider and with these new regions, we will be able to serve our customers while helping them comply with data regulations and policies,” said Barracuda Networks APAC Vice President James Forbes-May.
Barracuda’s latest version of Cloud-to-Cloud Backup delivers a fast search and restore experience for Office 365 data, including Teams, Exchange Online, SharePoint, and OneDrive. Compared to traditional backup and recovery solutions, it is a cloud-first solution that provides scale and resiliency, fast performance, and wide global coverage to protect Office 365 data born in the cloud.
In a recent study conducted by Barracuda, organisations disclosed that data protection is both a security and regulatory concern for them. A full 69% of respondents said they are concerned about storage of the data being backed up outside their geography (geo residency), and more than 7 in 10 respondents are concerned about compliance with data privacy requirements.
