Single, Easy-to-Implement Solution Streamlines Data Backup and Recovery Across Virtual and Physical Systems Running Multiple Operating Systems
ISLANDIA, N.Y. – CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced key product and pricing enhancements to CA ARCserve® that uniquely address the growing demand of customers and service providers for simple, comprehensive data protection that can safeguard information assets across today’s complex IT environments—including virtual and physical systems—on-premise, off premise and in the cloud running multiple operating systems.
These enhancements—driven by close collaboration with CA Technologies customer, reseller and service provider communities and delivered under the company’s Agile Development and Release program—provide comprehensive backup, disaster recovery and business continuity capabilities in a single solution that is easy to evaluate, acquire, implement, and own.
The newest version of CA ARCserve has also been designed for simplified adaptability to future changes in the IT environment—an attribute that has become especially important as those environments are often in a state of ongoing transition to virtualization, cloud and other evolving architectures.
“Customers’ backup-and-recovery needs are evolving rapidly, so it is incumbent upon CA Technologies as an industry leader to rapidly evolve our solutions as well,” said Steve Fairbanks, vice president, Product Delivery, Data Management, CA Technologies. “Through our Agile Development and Release Program, we are executing on that rapid evolution with enhancements directly driven by and targeted at the new challenges our customers and partners face.”
These high-value enhancements include:
CA ARCserve is available under traditional, perpetual software licensing, through a monthly or annual subscription, or as a comprehensive turnkey Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering that includes bundled and integrated cloud storage.
“CA Technologies clearly understands our changing needs and has demonstrated a commitment to delivering the capabilities we require to fulfill our customer requirements,” said Gregory Tellone, CEO of Continuity Centers, a New York-based business continuity and disaster recovery solutions provider whose Instant Business Recovery offering is powered by CA ARCserve. “The cloud and virtualization support in CA ARCserve is particularly well-aligned with what our clients require to protect their business and for us to provide them with peace-of-mind.”
A powerful service platform for MSPs
In addition to meeting the evolving needs of SMB and mid-market customers, CA ARCserve offers Managed Service Providers (MSPs) a powerful, flexible platform for building business continuity solutions for their clients. MSPs will find new CA ARCserve features, simple and cost-effective licensing and pricing options, extensive management and cloud integrations particularly useful.
“Growing businesses are looking for service providers like Elevated Technologies to help them conserve capital while still meeting their highly challenging IT objectives,” said Jason Rorie, president, Elevated Technologies, a Houston-based provider of managed and cloud services. “The latest CA ARCserve enhancements—especially its new automated high availability tools—are perfect for enabling us to meet the needs of this expanding market segment.”
