Arcserve is an historical company in data protection: first emerged in 1990 as Cheyenne Software, and then quickly flourished as a backup software provider with their flagship ARCserve BACKUP product.

They have announced the new release of Unified Data Protection (UDP) solution that accelerated cloud and on-premise capabilities, and support for AWS Cloud, Nimble Storage, HPE 3PAR and Office 365.

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 optimised cost.
  • Fortified Data Availability: Organisations 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.

And new certifications for:

  • Windows Server 2016
  • vSphere 6.5
  • Latest Red Hat / CentOS (7.x) / SLES (12 sp2)
  • Oracle Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK)
