Arkeia Unveils Third Generation Backup Appliance Deployment Solution

By Rajani Baburajan, TMCnet Contributor

Arkeia Software, a provider of appliance deployment solutions for backup and disaster recovery, has just unveiled a new generation of an all-in-one backup appliance.

The new backup appliance offers advanced capabilities including increased backup storage, faster connectivity, higher capacity tape drives, integrated solid state drives (SSDs), integrated vSphere protection, progressive de-duplication via Arkeia Network Backup v9 software, and cloud for off-site storage.

The new generation appliance deployment solution delivers larger internal disk capacity and RAID-6 for more secure local data storage. The solution also offers improved network connectivity, and integrated SSDs contribute to shorter backup windows.

Furthermore, by offering integrated bare-metal disaster recovery  and out-of-the-box support for VMware vSphere virtual environments, the new line of table-top and rack-mounted appliances drives down the cost and complexity of deploying backup infrastructure, according to company officials.

Arkeia specializes in both physical and virtual appliance deployment solutions for data protection. Its appliances drive down the costs of deploying data protection solutions by avoiding the complexity of software deployment, as well as minimizing the ongoing costs of management and software updates.

"Arkeia appliances are engineered around Arkeia's flagship network backup software, the award-winning Arkeia Network Backup," said Bill Evans, CEO of Arkeia Software, in a statement. "Our engineers tune the integration of hardware and software to make the backup solution easy to deploy, painless to manage, and highly reliable. Since their initial introduction in 2007, Arkeia appliances have protected the data of tens of thousands of servers worldwide."

Arkeia hardware is an enterprise-class appliance deployment solution offering flash-based firmware, enterprise-class disk drives, and top-quality chassis and power supplies. Different models of appliances are available with field-expandable disk capacity, optional LTO-4 tape drives, and dual, redundant power supplies.

Third generation Arkeia appliances models 120, 220, and 320 are available now, with model 620 to be made available in Q4 2011.
