"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
