Arcserve Solves Hybrid Cloud and Hyperconverged Data Protection Challenges

Arcserve, a data protection provider, has announced the newest version of Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP). Powered by heterogeneous, image-based technology, this release was specifically designed to remove the multiple points of failure typically introduced into IT environments through a piecemeal, “do-it-yourself” approach to data backup and disaster recovery (DR), including those with hyperconverged and SaaS-based applications.

Citing an independent global study of 759 IT decision-makers, Arcserve says 74% are not fully confident in their ability to recover critical data when needed, and most deploy numerous types of workloads that require varying levels of availability. Creating a cohesive strategy to protect the wide scope of their systems and applications often results in a highly complex IT ecosystem that is difficult and costly to manage.

According to Arcserve, the new release extends backup and DR technologies to protect every type of workload, including Nutanix AHV and Microsoft Office 365, while offering method for business continuity and disaster recovery that cuts recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs) to minutes and seconds.

Arcserve UDP for Microsoft Office 365—In addition to its support for Microsoft Azure and Hyper-V, Arcserve UDP offers backup and granular recovery for Microsoft Office 365, including Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. Deduplication and compression with AES encryption make it ideal for companies transitioning from Exchange to Microsoft Office 365, as well as any organization that requires offsite backup and point-in-time recovery of Office 365 and other data protection features not natively available.

Arcserve UDP for Nutanix AHV—Arcserve introduces agentless protection for production workloads on Nutanix AHV and the ability to leverage Nutanix AHV as a DR platform. A streamlined administration experience is delivered within the same unified, web-based management console of Arcserve UDP, without the need for new or additional user interfaces.

 “This release signals a new frontier in backup and disaster recovery innovation, and allows our partners and customers to protect their data through a single user interface to any target, whether that’s on-premises or in the cloud,” said Oussama El-Hilali, CTO at Arcserve. “Reducing the complexity of managing tiered systems and data has always been our main objective, and we’re continuing that legacy with this new iteration of Arcserve UDP.”
