CA Technologies Ramps Up Linux Protection

CA Technologies, an infrastructure tools provider, announced a data protection and disaster recovery package for businesses running virtual and physical servers on the popular open source platform. CA ARCserve D2D for Linux is an image-based solution that helps organizations protect the integrity and availability of critical systems, applications and data within their shrinking backup windows. It complements CA ARCserve D2D for Microsoft Windows.

“IT has to aggressively reduce the amount of time and effort they spend protecting mission-critical systems, including those powered by Linux,” according to Steve Fairbanks, vice president of data management product delivery at CA Technologies. “CA ARCserve empowers our customers to fulfill their most pressing recovery objectives with a single, cross-platform solution and licensing options tailored to achieve maximum return on investment.”

CA ARCserve data compression is designed to help reduce backup-related storage requirements and costs. Unattended bare-metal recovery enables systems to quickly and easily be restored to similar or dissimilar physical or virtual servers – giving customers greater flexibility when it comes to recovery infrastructure.  Granular recovery enables individual file restoration from any recovery point image.

CA ARCserve D2D for Linux supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.x and 6.x, as well as CentOS 5.x and 6.x.  CA ARCserve backup, replication and high availability solutions also support Linux.
