Security appliance vendor Barracuda Networks has bought itself a small slice of the data backup and disaster recovery market with the acquisition of Yosemite Technologies.
The Campbell, California-based vendor specialises in email and web security appliances, but also has backup and archiving product and services lines. The Barracuda Backup Service combines an onsite appliance with a monthly subscription starting at just $49, which replicates data to two offsite locations.
It has said it intends to incorporate the Yosemite Backup technology into its own Barracuda Backup Service to supply services that offer incremental backups of applications such as Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft SQL, as well as Microsoft Windows state backup at no additional charge.
Yosemite Technologies is best known for its Tapeware product line, which sold well for almost a decade before it was discontinued at the end of 2006 and replaced by Yosemite Backup.
