CA Announces ARCserve Recovery Management Products
CA updates and adds to its ARCserve family of data management and recovery solutions with a slew of new and updated product releases, including ARCserve Backup, ARCserve Replication, ARCserve High Availability, and a disk-to-disk backup and restore product, ARCserve D2D.IT management software and solutions company CA announced releases of ARCserve Backup, ARCserve Replication, ARCserve High Availability (formerly XOsoft Replication and High Availability), and a disk-to-disk backup and restore product, ARCserve D2D. ARCserve r15, also released today, builds on the ARCserve r12.5, which included virtualization enhancements and built-in data deduplication, with new features like infrastructure visualization and granular restore of Microsoft Active Directory.
The r15 products are focused on delivering total protection, recovery and availability of critical business information by extending the IT administrator's ability to protect systems, applications and data regardless of changes in their environment such as remote office/branch office expansion; policy changes driven by regulatory compliance; M&A activity and technology transformation such as deployment; and upgrades to new applications like Microsoft SharePoint or server virtualization and data migration.
"Our customers need to leverage new technologies and solutions to make IT more effective in meeting today's demanding business requirements," said Adam Famularo, senior vice president and general manager of CA's recovery management and data modeling business unit. "With the CA ARCserve family of products, we continue to deliver enhanced data protection and availability products to help them achieve these goals."
ARCserve Backup helps to minimize the risk of data loss and ensure the integrity and availability of data and combines disk and tape backup features including data deduplication, granular restore and infrastructure visualization. ARCserve D2D provides protection and recovery for Windows disk-based servers, supporting multiple Windows platforms and Microsoft applications. It can be used stand-alone, or work with other CA ARCserve products to manage environments that include tape or require that data be replicated to remote offices.
ARCserve Replication, formerly known as XOsoft Replication, helps IT ensure continuous data protection and data migration at the data center and remote offices, as well as helping integrate application-aware replication and continuous data protection (CDP) to ensure the protection and recoverability of applications, files, e-mails and databases across Windows, Linux and Unix in both physical and virtual environments.
RCserve High Availability, formerly known as XOsoft High Availability, helps maximize system, application and data uptime and availability to meet service-level agreements (SLAs) and disaster recovery strategies. It protects any Windows, Linux and Unix file servers, applications or databases, including Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, SharePoint, IIS and Dynamics CRM, as well as Oracle and BlackBerry Servers on physical and virtual servers. It includes all ARCserve Replication r15 features, and adds server and application-level monitoring, automated and push-button failover, and push-button failback.
"Today, IT managers face a multitude of challenges and business requirements forcing them to adapt their data protection requirements to adequately safeguard their business-critical data," said Robert Amatruda, research director for data protection and recovery at research firm IDC. "CA's ARCserve r15 release provides IT managers an integrated set of tools allowing them to support multiple protection and availability use cases, from legacy to the latest physical and virtualized servers and operating systems."
