Arcserve Unveils Business Continuity Cloud

Arcserve, a provider of data protection software, has introduced its Business Continuity Cloud. The solution is aimed at preventing the negative impact of unplanned downtime by immediately restoring access to critical data, systems, and applications across complex, multi-generational IT infrastructures ranging from non-x86 and x86, to software as a service (SaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS).

With this solution, Arcserve says, it solves the challenges of protecting modern IT caused by the time, skill, expense and multiple tools needed to protect new workloads.

According to new data being released by Arcserve, 64% of global IT decision makers agree that protecting business-critical data has not become easier over the past 5 years, despite efforts to adopt solutions to simplify and reduce costs. And, as backup infrastructures are increasingly becoming more costly and complex, the tolerance for data loss is diminishing. Ninety-three percent of IT decision makers said their organizations could tolerate “minimal,” if any, data loss from critical business applications, yet just 26% were “extremely confident” in their ability to recover quickly enough to avoid business disruption.

Additional findings from the survey found that as data protection concerns grow, most organizations are looking to the cloud for backup and disaster recovery. IT decision makers cite implementing a cloud platform for backup and disaster recovery as their top priority this year, with more confidence in protecting critical data in private clouds than local storage, hypervisors, public clouds, and blockchain.

Concerns over downtime and data loss are growing, primarily driven by media coverage of data breaches and/or ransomware attacks; and high-profile data access scandals such as Cambridge Analytica’s access to Facebook users’ personal information and the 2017 Equifax data breach.

According to the company, the Arcserve Business Continuity Cloud eliminates the need for other data protection tools and management consoles with fully-integrated capabilities to protect and restore applications and systems in any location— on-premise and in public and private clouds.
