The Disaster Recovery Option lets you perform fast, simple, and reliable bare metal recovery of failed servers. This capability lets you get your applications up and running quickly. The option ensures rapid, bare metal recovery of the failed server, and you will not need to reinstall the operating system or CA ARCserve Backup.
The option lets you perform restore operations from data that is stored on a SAN and over the network. You can create boot diskettes, CD recovery images, and OBDR (one-button disaster recovery) tape drives, to further simplify the recovery process.
Integrated cloud storage
Easily take advantage of cloud services as part of a disk-to-disk-to-cloud backup policy for remote, off-site protection, archiving or additional storage capacity. It enables the flexibility of cloud services for your data protection and helps you to take advantage of operational budget instead of capital budget for your storage needs.
Synthetic full backups
Reduce recovery time and complexity by providing a "full" backup picture to recover from, eliminating the tedious process of restoring multiple backups to recover to a specific point in time. This is important because it results in less downtime, a more reliable recovery process and reduced IT resource time.
Integrated data deduplication
Improve the economics of backup and recovery by enabling longer retention periods. In this way, you can provide a cost-effective means of reducing storage, protecting critical data and integrating, configuring and managing data deduplication in the existing backup environment.
Protection of virtualized servers
Incorporate sophisticated backup and recovery functionality into VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V and Citrix XenServer virtualization technologies, easing management and mitigating the risk of data on virtualized servers.
A dashboard with Storage Resource Manager (SRM) reporting
Proactively avoid downtime with graphical insight into your backup environment to monitor the status of all backup activities, find the nodes that are taking the longest, locate backed-up data, discover whether data is encrypted and ready for disaster recovery and track volume, disk and memory usage on each of your production servers.
Centralized management and administration
Reduce management time and help to provide faster responses by enabling IT administrators to manage, modify and control backup and restore jobs, media devices, activity logs, alerts, catalogs, product licensing and reports from a single point that spans local and remote servers and locations.
Simplify system management with an easy-to-read network diagram view of the entire environment. The diagram includes all of the servers, storage and other devices, showing how they relate to each other and to the CA ARCserve Backup media server(s). Easy drilldown on each component offers status, backup methodology and other key information to reduce management time.
Flexible backup methods
Use high-performance, non-disruptive backup and restore operations that help to meet the specific needs of your mission-critical information and data assets. These include backup to disk, backup to tape, disk-to-disk-to-tape backup, disk-to-disk-to-cloud backup, virtual tape library (VTL), hardware snapshot support, multiplexing and multi-streaming. All of these work in concert to protect your data, help you recover quickly and meet your service-level agreements (SLAs) for recovery point objectives (RPOs) and recovery time objectives (RTOs).
Efficient backup processes
Improve the performance and reliability of your backup, storage and server environment with patent-pending data deduplication and SRM reporting functionality. These features help eliminate redundant data and reduce storage costs, enabling you to store more recovery points on a given disk and provide actionable information to help reduce unplanned downtime.
Media Assure technology
Provide automated testing of the data on your backup media, verifying that it is readable and writable, helping you report on the usability of all media and verify whether it is accessible without identification.
Wide Area Network (WAN) bandwidth-optimized remote office backups
Eliminate tapes from remote offices by replicating remote office data to your central data center and perform non-disruptive replica server backups, helping you to better utilize your existing backup resources.
