Arkeia Rack-Mounted Backup Appliances Double in Capacity

By Rajani Baburajan, TMCnet Contributor


Arkeia Software, a provider of network backup solutions, recently has doubled the storage capacity of its rack-mounted backup appliances for deployment in a wide range of storage and data protection applications in remote offices, regional offices and enterprise data centers.

The combination of Arkeia's data deduplication technologies with increased capacity of its rack-mounted appliances provides a solution to companies that need to expand their backup infrastructure in an easy and efficient way without having to adopt more costly and cumbersome upgrade alternatives.

The two Arkeia R320 and R620 backup appliances, 2U in height, will now support up to 48TB maximum raw capacity. Capacity beyond the internal limit of 24TB is now provided by fiber-channel-connected, third-party disk arrays.

Arkeia's Progressive Deduplication technology reduces the size of backup by a ratio of typically five to one in typical backup sets, so users can effectively manage 240TB of non-deduped data. R320 and R620 backup appliance deployment solutions are field-upgradeable from 12TB to 24TB, and now to 48TB.

The company also allows channel partners to connect third-party disk arrays via fiber channel to already-deployed Arkeia appliances.   

“Complexity, cost of management, and total cost of ownership of backup and recovery solutions need not be high in order to achieve high capacities, particularly when deduplication is used to conserve storage resources," said Bill Evans, Arkeia CEO, in a statement.

"Doubling the maximum disk capacity of Arkeia's popular backup appliances means they will appeal to even more mid-market organizations, as well as better accommodate the growing needs of current Arkeia customers,” Evans added. “Arkeia channel partners can leverage established storage hardware relationships to quickly deploy third-party storage disk arrays and expand Arkeia appliance capacity."

Arkeia's R320 and R620 appliances allow organizations to go from standard backup operations to deployment of more advanced data protection strategies without the need to re-engineer their backup architecture.
