Arcserve, LLC, whose breakthrough data protection and availability solutions deliver enterprise power with small team simplicity, today announced the new release of its flagship Unified Data Protection (UDP) solution. New and expanded data protection capabilities deliver further integration into public cloud infrastructures for disaster recovery (DR), advanced DR orchestration and reporting, and extended on-premise protection.
“As the requirements of organizations evolve, IT teams need a highly-efficient and adaptable solution that maximizes their resources and provides comprehensive data protection and availability without extensive and costly professional services, “said Christophe Bertrand, Vice President, Product Marketing, Arcserve. “The new version of Arcserve UDP delivers this and takes it one step further with innovative new cloud and reporting capabilities that enable our channel partners and customers to deliver higher operational efficiencies as they improve their RPOs and RTOs.”
Already encompassing high-performance capabilities that deliver complete protection to and from any target, the new release of Arcserve UDP includes:
• Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud as a Remote DR Site: IT professionals can now replicate recovery points to an RPS in AWS Cloud, launch an EC2 instance directly from the recovery point, leverage virtual standby for Windows to AWS EC2, restore an EC2 instance (instant virtual machine for Linux) to AWS EC2, and copy full recovery points to AWS S3 at an optimized cost.
• Fortified Data Availability: Organizations eliminate the risk of data loss due to an outage or accidental deletion with enhanced Microsoft Exchange online and Microsoft Office 365 protection to a local backup of the Office 365 data or to any cloud that supports the UDP RPS, backup from UNC Paths (CIFS protection) from within the UDP console, leverage automatic protection of newly added VMware virtual machines, and enable faster protection of data on Nimble Storage and HPE 3PAR arrays with fully-integrated snapshot support.
• New and Expanded Reporting and Orchestration: IT teams view the health status of recovery points through automatic, non-disruptive testing for Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems, as well as measure and demonstrate RTOs and RPOs with detailed serve level agreement reports that display the total number of nodes with available recovery points.
“Cloud-enabled solutions are becoming increasingly important to optimizing data protection strategies for all organizations – regardless of size,” said Nicholas Gee, Technical Director, Cloud Ready Solutions. “The new release of Arcserve UDP not only arms us with stronger public cloud capabilities, but enables us to provide push-button, non-disruptive testing for disaster readiness from within the UDP console. This feature, in itself, opens up a lot of doors for IT teams looking to move from managing day-to-day backup operations to a more preventative exception management process – which is a critical differentiator for our partners and clients.”
