Arcserve Southern Africa has revealed that data protection provider, Arcserve, has announced the newest version of Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP).
This is the industry’s leading solution for comprehensive protection of every type of workload. Powered by heterogeneous, image-based technology, this release was specifically designed to remove the multiple points of failure typically introduced into IT environments through a piecemeal, ‘do-it-yourself’ approach to data backup and disaster recovery (DR), including those with hyper-converged and SaaS-based applications.
According to an independent global study of 759 IT decision makers, commissioned by Arcserve, 74% are not fully confident in their ability to recover critical data when needed, and most deploy numerous types of workloads that require varying levels of availability. Creating a cohesive strategy to protect the wide scope of their systems and applications often results in a highly complex IT ecosystem that is difficult and costly to manage.
“As the deployment of new systems and applications accelerates, it’s become necessary to have a data protection solution that can provide visibility into and help IT teams protect every type of workload,” said Phil Goodwin, Research Director, IDC.
“Arcserve UDP is designed to bring technologies together in a way that simplifies the infrastructure running a combination of on-premise, virtual and SaaS-based applications and systems. Without a comprehensive solution spanning these different application environments, organisations may be susceptible to downtime and data loss.”
The new release of Arcserve UDP extends industry-proven backup and DR technologies to protect every type of workload, including Nutanix AHV and Microsoft Office 365, while offering a ‘done-for-you’ method to achieve seamless business continuity and disaster recovery by cutting recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery points objectives (RPOs) to minutes and seconds.
Arcserve UDP for Microsoft Office 365
In addition to its deep support for Microsoft Azure and Hyper-V, Arcserve UDP offers backup and granular recovery for Microsoft Office 365, including Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. Deduplication and compression with AES encryption make it ideal for companies transitioning from Exchange to Microsoft Office 365, as well as any organisation that requires offsite backup and point-in-time recovery of Office 365 and other data protection features not natively available.
Arcserve UDP for Nutanix AHV
Arcserve introduces comprehensive agentless protection for production workloads on Nutanix AHV and the ability to leverage Nutanix AHV as a DR platform. A streamlined administration experience is delivered within the same unified, web-based management console of Arcserve UDP, without the need for new or additional user interfaces.
“Since first launching Arcserve UDP five years ago, we’ve continued to push the envelope to meet the ever-changing demands of digital businesses,” said Oussama El-Hilali, CTO at Arcserve.
“This release signals a new frontier in backup and disaster recovery innovation and allows our partners and customers to protect their data through a single user interface to any target, whether that’s on-premises or in the cloud. Reducing the complexity of managing tiered systems and data has always been our main objective, and we’re continuing that legacy with this new iteration of Arcserve UDP.”
