CA ARCserve® Backup

More than Basic Backup

Your Challenge

In business, change is constant. With the development of virtual servers and cloud-based computing and storage, your IT architecture has changed. How do you manage more data in more locations while reducing storage costs? How do you proactively monitor systems to avoid problems that could cause data loss? How do you ensure a quick recovery in case of an unplanned outage? How do you manage in this mixed environment of physical, virtual and cloud technologies and make sure that your data is always protected? CA ARCserve Backup can help you.

Your Backup

With extensive management features that work together to help reduce the time you spend managing your backups, CA ARCserve Backup provides “enterprise-class” functionality that is optimized to support your IT architecture, including virtual and cloud-based technologies, no matter how simple or complex your data or your IT infrastructure is. CA ARCserve Backup helps you quickly prepare for, respond to and recover from the disasters and disruptions that would otherwise threaten the integrity and reliability of your business operations.

Benefits to your business:

  • Data deduplication to reduce your backup storage by up to 95 percent.
  • Integrated cloud storage for backup retention, providing an additional disaster recovery location.
  • Infrastructure Visualization with Storage Resource Manager (SRM) reporting to proactively avoid problems.
  • Data protection for both physical and virtual servers in a single money-saving tool.

CA ARCserve® Backup Product Features

CA ARCserve Backup delivers industry-leading, enterprise-class data protection for a wide range of operating environments. It includes the following features:

  • Integrated Cloud Storage — Easily take advantage of cloud services as part of a disk-to-disk-to-cloud (D2D2C) backup policy for remote, off-site protection, archiving or additional storage capacity. It enables the flexibility of cloud services for your data protection and helps you to take advantage of operational budget instead of capital budget for your storage needs.
  • Synthetic Full Backups — Reduce recovery time and complexity by providing a “full” backup picture to recover from, eliminating the tedious process of restoring multiple backups to recover to a specific point in time. This is important because it results in less downtime, a more reliable recovery process and reduced IT resource time.
  • Archiving — Reduce backup windows, network traffic and storage management costs by archiving data to disk, tape or the cloud. This is important to manage the growing volumes of data while reducing the drain on your physical resources, prolonging your infrastructure investment.
  • Integration with CA ARCserve D2D — Reduce risk and improve recovery times by using a combination of snapshot-based backups (CA ARCserve D2D) and traditional file-based backups (CA ARCserve Backup) to protect your servers. Quick recovery with the most efficient methodology, based on the type of outage, results in reduced downtime costs, increased employee productivity and more time for IT personnel to pursue strategic projects.
  • Integrated Data Deduplication — Improve the economics of backup and recovery by enabling longer retention periods. In this way, you can provide a cost-effective means of reducing storage, protecting critical data and integrating, configuring and managing data deduplication in the existing backup environment.
  • Protection of Virtualized Servers — Incorporate sophisticated backup and recovery functionality into VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V and Citrix XenServer virtualization technologies, easing management and mitigating the risk of data on virtualized servers.
  • A Dashboard with Storage Resource Manager (SRM) Reporting — Proactively avoid downtime with graphical insight into your backup environment to monitor the status of all backup activities, find the nodes that are taking the longest, locate backed-up data, discover whether data is encrypted and ready for disaster recovery and track volume, disk and memory usage on each of your Production servers.
  • Centralized Management and Administration — Reduce management time and help to provide faster responses by enabling IT Administrators to manage, modify and control backup and restore jobs, media devices, activity logs, alerts, catalogs, product licensing and reports from a single point that spans local and remote servers and locations.
  • Infrastructure Visualization — Simplify system management with an easy-to-read network diagram view of the entire environment. The diagram includes all of the servers, storage and other devices, showing how they relate to each other and to the CA ARCserve Backup Media server(s). Easy drilldown on each component offers status, backup methodology and other key information to reduce management time.
  • Support for Advanced Backup and Restore — Protect your business-critical applications with specific agents, including Microsoft SQL Server, Exchange Server and SharePoint; Oracle; Lotus Domino; SAP R/3; and Sybase. Help to ensure data integrity by protecting the transaction log, archive log, journal files and all associated data.
  • Flexible Backup Methods — Use high-performance, non-disruptive backup and restore operations that help to meet the specific needs of your mission-critical information and data assets. These include backup to disk, backup to tape, disk-to-disk-to-tape (D2D2T) backup, disk-to-disk-to-cloud (D2D2C) backup, virtual tape library (VTL) and Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service snapshot support, hardware snapshot support, multiplexing and multi-streaming. All of these work in concert to protect your data, help you recover quickly and meet your service-level agreements (SLAs) for recovery point objectives (RPOs) and recovery time objectives (RTOs).
