Arcserve Expands Unified Data Protection Platform With Cloud
The offering gives users the ability to store valuable business data for disaster recovery without the cost and maintenance of dedicated hardware.Data protection and recovery software and services provider Arcserve announced the launch of the Arcserve Cloud, a service for off-site data protection. Integrated with the company’s unified data protection (UDP) appliance, its Cloud could help businesses complete their data-protection goals, and adds an option for Arcserve managed service providers (MSPs) to extend their data-protection solution portfolio. The offering lets users store valuable business data for disaster recovery without the cost and maintenance of dedicated hardware, racking, power, and IT resources or maintaining another third-party contract. "The up-front capital of building an off-site recovery data center requires in some cases, and in general, the resources needed to implement a truly effective and efficient disaster recovery infrastructure on your own," Christophe Bertrand, vice president of product marketing management at Arcserve, told eWEEK. "That’s why the Arcserve Cloud is a great solution that takes the complexity and cost away, while [businesses] still benefit from enhanced data recovery capabilities."
Businesses can also spin up a virtual machine in the Arcserve Cloud for fast failover and failback—the cloud will first be offered as a service extension to Arcserve’s UDP appliance, which supports physical to physical, physical to virtual, and virtual to virtual.
