Canada : CA ARCserve r16.5 Expands Protection of Virtual Servers, Simplifies Essential Backup and Disaster Recovery Operations [TendersInfo (India)]
(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) CA Technologies today announced new enhancements to its CA ARCserve data protection solution that simplify backup and disaster recovery for physical and virtual server environments, while significantly improving performance, scalability and flexibility.
The new release adds key new replication and virtualization capabilities for improved business continuity making it ideally suited to small- and medium-sized businesses, as well as service providers seeking to quickly build or add to their data protection portfolios. Enhancements include:
Expanded Virtualization Support - CA ARCserve provides both VM-level and host-level backups for VMware servers, and it offers VM-level backups for Microsoft Hyper-V and Citrix XenServer. Now customers can replicate both VM-level and host-level backups offsite for disaster recovery. It also now supports VMware vSphere 5.1.
Remote Virtual Standby - This new feature enables customers to automatically replicate image-based backups to an offsite facility and convert them into bootable VMs. In addition to providing businesses with a way to rapidly restore critical systems offsite in the event of a site disaster, this capability enables MSPs to deliver managed services for business continuity.
Improved Performance - Internal testing has shown that NTFS backup speeds have improved by 43%. Many customers should experience speed improvements which will empower them to deal with ever-shortening backup windows.
Cascading Failover - For customers with the most stringent continuity requirements, CA ARCserve now offers the ability to replicate servers and their data to multiple onsite and/or remote failover servers. This cascading failover approach lets customers and MSPs alike leverage local resources for simple outages, while maintaining remote resources in one or more locations to protect themselves against local or even regional disasters.
Extended Public Cloud Support - CA Technologies has expanded cloud support for backup migration to Microsoft Windows Azure, Fujitsu Global Cloud and Eucalyptus 3.0 and 3.1 based clouds, as well as Amazon Web Services EC2 for customers in Japan.
Additional platform support - CA ARCserve r16.5 now provides backup, recovery, replication and high availability for Windows Server 2012/Windows 8 environments, including those using new Microsoft Windows features such as NTFS deduplication, Resilient File Systems (ReFS) and Storage Spaces.
Organizations looking for a data protection solution that is deep in capability and low-cost from initial purchase to ongoing administration should look no further than CA ARCserve, said Mike Crest, general manager of Data Management at CA Technologies.
