Arcserve claims industry first for disaster recovery and application availability

Data protection provider, Arcserve has launched its third generation Appliance Series, saying it is the first purpose-built package designed for disaster recovery that can be deployed in under 15 minutes.

The application provides organisations with an all-in-one option for on-appliance and offsite backup and disaster recovery (DR), it is claimed.

The company has powered its latest package with its award-winning Unified Data Protection (UDP) software, the series bundles flash-accelerated deduplicated storage, robust server processing, and high-speed networking with highly-redundant hardware and cloud services that enable companies to spin up copies of physical and virtual systems directly on the appliance, and in private or public clouds.

The user can utilise built-in real-time replication with automatic and push-button failover and failback through the appliances to protect mission-critical systems, applications and data.

A recent survey conducted by Arcserve found that only 26 percent of IT decision-makers are extremely confident in their ability to recover. And a survey from IDC found that 43 percent of IT decision-makers plan to move to an on-premises private cloud and 37 percent intend to move to a hosted private cloud over the next 24 months.

“As organisations evolve to meet the needs of digital consumers, tackling the cost and complexity of disaster recovery is becoming more urgent,” suggested Phil Goodwin, research director at IDC. “We’ve seen more companies seeking hybrid environments to manage costs and seamlessly achieve recovery. By bundling DR with its appliance offering, Arcserve is pivoting from competitive approaches to provide a turnkey path to application availability. It’s almost as though Arcserve is giving away DR capabilities for free.” 

“The new Appliance Series will help us meet growing demand for hybrid onsite and cloud-based backup and DR without the extreme cost and complexity typically associated with implementing a cohesive strategy,” commented Todd Crystal, president at Spencomp Solutions.”
